Photographer's Note

My favourite restuarant in Ketou was 'La Detente.' There was nothing particularly fancy about the place: just a place with ample shade to beat the heat of the hot African sun & a freezer full of ice cold Coca-Colas & Sprites.

Here is a very basic meal that you can expect from La Detente - or any other Beninese buvette for that matter. The sauce on top of the rice consists of tomatoes and onions. It's fairly spicy. It costs 100 franc CFA (a common currency that is used throughout French West Africa).
