    So-Tchonhoue Lake Village

    One of the smaller lake villages near Ganvie is So-Tchonhoue, which is closer to the shore than Ganvie is, and not as big or as pretty. We visited because we were on the German ambassador's boat and we went to look at a bridge the Germans have helped to build here between 2 small islands, which helps the villagers transport their goods across.
    It is about 30 minutes boat ride fom Ganvie.

    Lake Village of So-Zouko

    There are other lake villages on Lake Nakoue besides Ganvie, but they are not as big and some are not as pretty. This one was called So-Zouko and was about 20 minutes by motor boat from Ganvie. As we arrived the water taxi had arrived from Abomey-Calavi and it was full of people and their shopping.
