Return to Ouidah

We came to Madame Odette via our friend-turned-translator, Layo, who in turn came to her via his friend, her son, who led us to his mother’s home.

Weaving our way through a warren of alleyways and side streets in the centre of Ouidah, we sat down with Madame Odette in the forecourt of the family compound where, for the first time, she openly reflected on the events of her life that made her who she is.
