Ouidah, considered the major cultural city in the West African nation of Benin, is preparing for its annual Voodoo Festival on Thursday. Voodoo is an official religion in this nation of 9 million people and this year's festival will honor the salves taken from surrounding countries and sent into America and the Caribbean, people who brought the religion with them.
