Small and funny

%faThe Gambia is one of the smallest countries in Africa and it's dominated by water, tourism and peanuts. When you stay a month you've seen almost everything, but you can also integrate a visit when you're in Senegal. It's easy to pass the border.

Streetlife Basse Santa Su

Basse is one of the biggest settlements in the eastern part of the country.
In the area the peanut industry is well developed.

    This must have been quite the experience! It was interesting hearing about the Kroc pond--it's amazing they allow themselves to be "pet"...regards from Texas
