I visited the  Batammariba people who live within the Koutammakou landscape in north-eastern Togo, which extends into neighbouring Benin. The Batammariba people are well known in Togo for their homes built of mud {Takienta}. The houses reflect the relationship between traditional belief systems and the natural landscape.
