Most people think of voodoo as black magic, but most voodoo is actually white magic. People go to the fetish market to buy the ingredients, which they then bring to the witch doctor next door. The witch doctor then grind the ingredients, perform a voodoo ceremony, and hopefully the person gets well, luck with love, or whatever the reason was to seek out voodoo in the first place. The fetish market in Lomé is famous for locals and tourists alike. The stalls are packed with animal skins, skulls, and bones, all with great voodoo power for the enlightened, but there are tourist voodoo dolls too. Visiting the market has been put into system and is surprisingly orderly. You pay an entrance fee along with a camera fee and for that you get a guide, who explain all the strange fetish objects, can take pictures of everything, and a visit to a witch doctor. Though there isn't any hard sale, it's kind of expected that you buy a (overpriced) premade talisman from the witch doctor, but just consider it as an additional fee for the small voodoo ceremony.
