Cotonou in Motion, a tour around Cotonou, Benin (Africa) in timelapse / hyperlapse (Part 2)

Cotonou is the largest city and economic centre of Benin (Africa), although Porto-Novo is the capital. (Wikipedia)

Every time we have to talk about Cotonou, we usually have in mind its minimalist architechture, its road traffic with Zemidjan (motorcycle taxis), its international market (Dantokpa), its beaches and one of its best animated tourist suburbs (Ganvié, a lagoon city, better known as the African Venice) … These are the background images in my mind. Enjoy!

The part 1 is here:
