We often have no idea how large Africa really is. China, India, the USA, Japan and almost all of Europe fit into this continent.
Gambia, is the smallest country in Africa, and one of the poorest at the same time. The average wage is 398 USD / p.a. (As of 2016) which corresponds to about 0.92 EUR per day. In Germany, for comparison only, the average income is 80 EUR per day.
And yet people live in the here and now, are friendly and open. Gambia is different from many of Africa's popular tourist destinations. Many of my fellow travelers confirm this.
