entering tamberma country...

The Tamberma people live in a remote niche of northern Togo on the border with Benin. Their architecture is especially distinctive and fantastic.

Entering Tamberma country is like arriving in a fairy-tale world. The dwellings that dot the lansdscape are molded as one might imagine the castles of hobbits.
