Wansan Suudu Bleu
Arriving in Wansan, Zainab was captivated by the intriguing structures spread across the village....
Wave hello to Isatu and Fatoumatu, two Fulani women Zainab befriended during her time in Wansan.What's that behind them, you ask? It's the suudu udo, literally "grass hut." Aka the wife's domain.It's typical for a husband in the village to have several wives and each wife has her own suudu where she holds court and entertains. You'll even find the village hens- of the animal variety- roosting and holding their own court outside the suudu.Seeing the many suudu dotting the village and how they are utilized by the women and animals conjurs a comforting sense of community and belonging.
