Living in Gambia
The Gambia, which has the smallest area of any African nation, is essentially located inside of Senegal, except for a short Atlantic Ocean coastline to the west. The territory of the Gambia roughly follows the Gambia river. The capital city is called Banjul on the west coast, although Serekunda and Brikama both have greater populations. The authoritarian rule of Yahya Jemmah was ended in 2016 when a coalition of opposition parties won the election. The country has a population of just over 2 million inhabitants. Gambia’s economy is generally centred around agriculture, which employs 7 out of 10 of Gambians. However, the service sector is Gambia’s most valuable industry, accounting for just under 60% of the country’s GDP. Whilst the EU was once Gambia’s main export market, the country has since entered into trade with a more global selection including the United States and Japan. By far, Islam is the dominant religion in the country; Christianity is a very small minority with approximately 1 in 20 Gambians being Christian. The culture of Gambian does have clear European influences due to its history as a centre for the slave trade; in line with this, English is the official language of Gambia. In Gambia, the most popular sport is wrestling, though football is also popular.
