The market / FADA N’GOURMA

Fada, Gourmanche capital, is the main town on the route between Ouaga and Niger’s capital Niamey. Shrouded in mystery the Gourmanche land retains a great sense of spirit and traditional animism.d0111916_1817525.jpgd0111916_18185669.jpg

Sacred mountain / FADA N’GOURMA

This holy hill has either a dragon or a snake living beneath it. Traditional sacrifices for the protection of Fada still take place up here, to appease its resident. A spookily atomospheric place to watch the sun go down.

Bissap

Bissape juice is a bit like a cross between elderberry, cranberry and blackberry, made from deep purple petals of the bissap flowers. It can really pack a punch and served ice-cold.d0111916_17575023.jpgd0111916_17594574.jpgd0111916_1805859.jpg
