We had dinner at a new, and "really nice" (for Benin standards) bar. After that, we went to a different bar....Well, tried to get there anyway...My zemi driver didn't know where we were going, but he said he did. So, he was following the others, but they had better/faster zemis then him...so he lost them. He ended up driving around side streets acting like he knew where he was going
Thankfully, another Stagiaire and his zem pulled up behind me...apparently he didn't know where the place was either and had been following us. So, me and the other Stagiaire decided to walk around and ask people if they knew of this other bar. Some man said he did, but really didn't either...we learned about this in Culture class, you have to look at people in the eyes and read whether or not they are telling the truth. Well, this man was pretty convincing, so we wandered around with him for about an hour.
Finally, the other Stagiaire and I decided to just go back to the Volunteer's house. Along the way, we ran into the Volunteer; he was searching for us. We got to the bar, had a drink with the other Stagiaires there, and returned to the Volunteer's home. Watched some TV on the computer (Freaks & Geeks) and then went to bed for the night.
