I am holding one of the Paga crocodiles by the tail. In the town of Paga; nestled right up against Burkina Faso; is a sacred crocodile pond where locals believe that crocodiles hold the souls of the village’s deceased.
Edward Cothey-74: After the pounding of Semolina for FU FU.
Very popular across vWest Africa, fufu is a special meal made up of a mixture of different flavours, including cassava, cornmeal, plantains, yam, and/or semolina. Some people boil the starchy foods whole and then mash them into a dumpling-like consistency, while others use flours made from one or more of these ingredients. Swallowed instead of chewed, fufu is served with mostly groundnut or palm-nut soup.
