Leaving Benin was easy, and though the visa process took a little time, entering Togo was easy too. Immediately west of the border was a busy market, and then we were in Aného proper with the ocean blue and turquoise and fresh and inviting. Sadly, much of the golden sand was littered with plastic, perhaps washed up by the waves, or blown onto the sand from dumped refuse. Much of the beach is fronted by the poorer homes of town. Hope the owners know they are sitting on a potential goldmine.
Our hotel is on the beach, this section kept clean enough to entice us into the lukewarm waters. Such luxury.
