Mom Poses Questions


Now that you have broached the topic of eating dog, I think you owe your loyal blog readers more information. We want to understand more about this custom. Do people regularly eat dog, or only some people? Are these dogs similar to the critters we saw sharing the garbage with the pigs? I sit excitedly waiting for your reply.


For the most part, it's taboo in Benin, but anyone who's protein-starved will ignore that. I googled "typical West African dog" and this was the second image. It's those dogs.

Third Year

I re-interviewed for my job and got it, so I will definitely be staying in Benin until September 2009. I get one month of required home leave and I plan on taking that this November if possible.
