A hike to Point of No Return memorial where slaves left for the Americas at up the a.m. being a 4 km jaunt plus breakfast at seaside hotel...slaves last hike did not incl food tho. Saw many groups of H.S. kids touring the area, wonder what they are being told about the history of their ancestors...Dahomey civilization here managed to capture most of the future slaves for the western ¨market¨. Back in town the others visited the Sacred Forest where King Kpasse the founder of Oidah turned himself into a tree. Waiting for the minibus I watched several voodoo parades pass by, cerebrating ??? Left about 2 and checked into Casa Danza in PortoNovo.
