I always love butterfly so when I found out there’s a butterfly walk near Kpalime, Togo, I hired a car from the lake resort in Lome to go there. People told me it would took me 2 hours to get there and OFCOURSE IT TOOK MORE THAN THAT! I went there at around 11am and arrived there at 2pm. If anyone want to see the butterfly, it’s better to arrive there at noon since all the butterfly will come and drink water in the waterhole!
After we arrived the mountain, I had to hire another guide to take me to this butterfly walk! He took a net with us so he could caught some butterfly for us to look at.
Although it passed noon already, I could still saw a lot of butterflies over there. Just imagine if I go there at noon, should be impressive:) We passby so many different plants, flowers and trees. I was so happy to see Mimosa ( a sensitive plant that when you touch the leave, it will close) because there’s lot of them in the mountain of Hong Kong:)
Many plants carry natural colors and I had seen them when I did the spice tour in Zanzibar-very interesting:)
People draw with all these natural colors!
And there’s Cola nut which coca cola is made from. I was told it’s addictive!
And a tree that carry Palm nut-if I am correct:P African people make soup out of it.
And there’s local coffee!
The last photo is the house of a very famous African medicine man. After he dies, local people made a statue for him since he had cured many people.
To me, Africa is filled with resources, I just hope they will make the most of them later and NOT everything is from China anymore!
