We visited some villages in the Taberma valley. The houses are made of mud and these so called tatas looked like little castles to me. Though there is real poverty everywhere, the people are friendly and some are still celebrating the Ney Year. Spending a few days in this area made me realise how lucky I am to be born in Western Europe. In the Taberma valley there are no cities or hospitals around and education is very low. But the people showed me that you don't need to be educated or wealthy to be friendly and good. Human values are what matters!
Hopefully the tribes in Togo can keep their friendliness and traditions in the future. I wish for them they will be helped with education and healthcare. I am grateful to have been among them for a few days and grateful for the lessons in life they taught me. Merci a Togo! It was time to move on to Benin.
