Gambia is located in West Africa, on the Atlantic Ocean. This former British colony is the smallest independent state in Africa. With over 11,000 square kilometers the country is about one fifth of the Netherlands and Belgium. Gambia is basically a long strip of land, criss-crossed by the same river. The country is barely wider than 35 kilometers, with the exception of the coastal strip, which is nearly 50 miles wide. From the far west to the eastern border Gambia is over 320 kilometers long. Gambia is enclosed on three sides by Senegal. Senegal is more than seventeen times bigger than Gambia. There are close ties between the two countries. Gambia has over one million inhabitants. Despite that Gambia starts to become more popular among tourists (including, unfortunately, a lot of sex-tourists), Gambia remains one of the poorest countries of Africa. There isn't hardly money for education. It is a beautiful country with a friendly population.
