About the Gambia (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
The Republic of The Gambia, commonly known as The Gambia, or Gambia, is a country in Western Africa. The Gambia is the smallest country on mainland Africa, bordered to the north, east, and south by Senegal, with a small coast on the Atlantic Ocean in the west.
Its borders roughly correspond to the path of the Gambia River, the nation's namesake, which flows through the country's centre and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Its size is almost 10,500 km² with an estimated population of 1,700,000.
On 18 February 1965, The Gambia was granted independence from the United Kingdom and joined The Commonwealth. Banjul is The Gambia's capital, but the largest conurbation is Serekunda.
The Gambia shares historical roots with many other west African nations in the slave trade, which was key to the maintenance of a colony on the Gambia river, first by the Portuguese and later by the British. Since gaining independence in 1965, the Gambia has enjoyed relative stability, with the exception of a brief period of military rule in 1994.
An agriculturally rich country, its economy is dominated by farming, fishing, and tourism. About a third of the population live below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day

wait, i have another ten minutes!
I am loving life because of:
Acquiring a quality frying pan with lid, thorn resistant bicycle tubes, and packages from home. One package has taken 4 months to get here, but it did come intact!
Tonight is the Premier League championship match! I'm going to watch with a bunch of crazy Brits.
I promise myself to write a culturally insightful narrative in the next post, but right now, there are mangoes in the Gambia. Going to go eat a mango now.
Ten minutes done...end transmission.
