Summer programme visits Porto Novo

Porto Novo is the capital of Benin, described in the guide book as 'a magnificent fading glory that is a capital but not actually a capital...' if that helps! The journey from Cotonou is pretty straightforward, 30km to the east, once there the city lacks the chaos of Cotonou with far fewer zimi's (still lots, just fewer!).

So what did we do...we visited Centre Songhai and Jardin des Plantes et de la Nature, two places needing a blog in themselves...
