February 2011. I got my hair braided in Cinkasse in northern Togo. I had a great time talking and laughing with these two ladies, two wives of the same husband, while they did their work. Braids and wigs are the style there, as women often have a new hairdo every week. In general, men do not braid their hair, so I was making quite a fashion statement. I got mixed reactions, but I think it was a hit overall.
