  • Lieu culturel à visiter en venant à Mayotte. Il relate la récolte culturelle du sel dans la commune de Bandrélé. Ces "mamas shingos " sont vraiment courageuses et travailleuses car cela en demande.
  • C un lieu très intéressant à visité. Non seulement tu peux voir les mamans shingo en action, mais tu as la possibilité d'y participer toi aussi. C un travail difficile et qui demande bcp de patience mais c aussi très instructif. J'encourage tout le monde à y passer que ça soit pour une visite ou un achat. D'ailleurs je trouve les prix très raisonnable d'après le travail effectué par ces mamans là.
