After leaving Honduras and crossing the Atlantic, Elyx finally arrived in sunny Togo. As the capital Lomé is situated on the seaside, so Elyx decided to take the opportunity to visit its beautiful beaches. Lovely sights, such as the impressive old wharf, awaited Elyx, but unfortunately not all of the views were equally pretty: some of the beaches
were littered with trash. Thankfully the UNDP Environment Division is working closely with the government to clean the beaches and prevent further pollution. Elyx was also impressed to hear that Togo has banned plastic bags in an effort to protect the environment.
Leaving the beach, Elyx decided to take a bike trip to the border of Togo and Benin. On the way Elyx had time to water the plants in a small market garden near Anèho and even remind a passing motorcyclist on the importance of wearing a helmet.
Exhausted from the bike trip, Elyx thought it was time to have a nap under a coconut tree. After all, it was important to gather up energy for the next destination: Japan!
