When I was a small child, we lived in the former French West African colony of Dahomey. (The country is now known as Benin.) My earliest memories in life are from those days. Apropos of various recent conversations within the family, Dad has sent me a few photos from those days. I thought you guys might enjoy seeing a slice of life for Americans living in Africa in 1968.
