  • This fruit of sino-beninoise cooperation Congress Palace is a place of gathering for the scientific, cultural and political activities. I was there the last time for a working group meeting, crucible of reflection, to boost activity. This Palace located in Cotonou in Benin, is built on the edge of the Atlantic ocean between two major hotels, in a style of "Auntie somba" architecture of Northern Bénin. It is worth a visit.

  • I attended a Conference of Inafi on micro-finance and I met interesting places in Cotonou, he was one of the places where citizens of that time concentrated rustlers them like cattle after they separated them disintegrating families, and with all sorts of ill-treatments destetaban them of their motherland for sale on other continents, as in this world, the conquerors committed so many atrocities, descastando peoples of their lands and natural resources

  • It's a building that can be seen from a distance only. The police will keep you away from the entrance. So not exciting at all.  more »
