Earlyish rise - but not to rushed. We have a little time to swing by Chantal's workshop to look at her handmade fabrics and other trinkets. Our 15-minute stop turns into over 30, but we've managed to select some goodies for ourselves and the folks back home. I'm looking forward to seeing what Chantal does with the fabric I picked for a custom-made dress she'll be delivery on Monday!

So, the "best" road from Kpalimé to Atakpamé is under construction, so we take a roundabout dirt thoroughfare... it's a bit slower going than anticipated, and we arrive an hour late for our live radio interview at Radio Excelsior.
