The city of Cotonou in Benin

The city with no street names 沒有街名的城市


A city of three million people, with only a handful of street names.

No wonder trying to deliver a letter here is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

But this is changing, as the city of Cotonou, in Benin, is starting to name its streets and paint numbers on each house.

Residents hope this will help the city become better connected to the world and provide a boost for local businesses.
