For self-defence reasons, these people have been taking refuge for centuries in the heart of the Atakora, Day 6 :      BENIN  | FIRE DANCE In the heart of the village, a great fire lights up the faces of the dancers who start moving on the frenetic rhythm of the drums. The fire dancers, in a state of trance, throw themselves into the embers, grab them with their hands and put them in their mouths; they even run them over their bodies without showing any trace of injury or any sign of pain. Day 7  : THE MOUNTAIN OF THE « FETISH PRIESTS » The Fulani are mainly shepherds, and are famous for their beauty. Beautiful tattoos on their faces send messages to people who understand the language.
