Danse de Zangetos, Benin

I was so thrilled to receive this postcard, my first from Benin :) Rod Eime sent it to me from his travels to Africa.
It shows the Danse des Zangetos. The Republic of Benin is located in West Africa and used to be a French colony, hence the official language spoken is still French. In 1960 the country gained full independence and is now a democratic republic.
