in a four-wheel drive vehicle). Pius had, though intermediaries, arranged to have the head man meet us in the main square of one of the villages, with
some villagers who had clefts. We were not sure is this would actually happen.
We came to the village at the appointed time. Several villagers were indeed
there waiting. Three wooden benches were arranged in a U shape. A traditional greeting was done...Pius would say in EWE (the local language) a phrase and the villagers would respond in unison. Four different phrases were said with responses. We then walked around the bench and each of us shook each of their hands. Then we were seated and they all walked around and shook our hands.
