More From The First Half of the Africa Adventure

Lome, the capital city of Togo, sits on the southern coast of West Africa. It is just west of Nigeria and Africa's geologic "elbow". There are colorful shoe shops here!

We visited a fetish market and saw these primate skulls, used in voodoo ceremonies. Shame to see such religious superstition which unnecessarily kills wildlife.

Like many African nations, Togo got it's independence in the year 1960 and this is the Independence Monument in Lome.

A Voodoo dance.

A look at a home of the Tamberma people in northeast Togo.

Here's a close-up view of one of the dancers in Togo.
