New Year (1998) greetings to all those who visit this page
You have done a great job! Going through this site has made me very homesick. Do you want some pictures of the NorthBank?
The information provided is very interesting.
Between 1970 and 1975 I lived in Boston, Mass. I became involved in Pan-African Culture and met many Brothers and Sisters from the Continent. Two that I remember well were from The Gambia: Momodou Ceesay, an artist, and Minkalou Janneh, everybody's friend, fondly remembered as "Minx".
My former husband, Claude Livingston, played drums and flute with these brothers in a dance company. In 1974 We accepted
Islam and changed our names, using a different spelling of Janneh. When I last heard from Momodou he was on his way out
west, and Minkalou was in New York City. A few years ago I
contacted the Gambian Mission at the U.N. to see if they had
any information of their whereabouts. I did get an address for minkalou in Banjul, but did not get a reply. If anyone knows where.they are and how they are doing, I would appreciate the information. Thanks, and I enjoyed all the great information.
Very interesting, refreshing and unique site. Keep up the good work!
I like the site. it\s good for me and I have many friends
I hopoe there will be an internet cafe in Gambia, so we can write to some in Gambia.
Keep the good work there.
I am a proud Gambian studying in the beautiful and peacful country called Canada. Once on a while, I do cruise the net to look for informantion about my beloved country, The Gambia. I left home since June 1995 when I graduated from Saint Augustine's High School. I found government of The Gambia Homepage but the stuff in there is never up-to-date. I was wondering if you guys would be able to send me more recent information about the country? I defintely enjoyed cruising through this site. Have a very Merry Christmas!
Very impressed with the site, my wife and I are going to the Gambia in February for a Birding/wildlife trip. Any additional info would be most welcome.
I liked very much, to discover that there is so much information about this country,which I discovered on TV about 6 years ago, and just now, November '97,visited.
It was just a discovery for me, the country so poor, but so rich in friendly people, that I'm sure for a fact to return very soon. Altough just as a tourist, I made several friends, with whom I stay in touch and try to assist in a modest way
i am happy to be with my fellow Gambians. i am from SOLOLO, A MILE FROM BANSANG. I attended Gambia High School , in Banjul. Please, be happy to drop me a note.

I found very much interesting on this site. My interest for The Gambia started as I visited our sister organization GAPD (The Gambia Association of the Physically Disabled) 1992.
Great pictures...lots of memories...THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME!!
This is perhaps the best and most comprehensive Gambian web site I have come across. Great Job, Mr. Lyons!
I am from the City of Banjul, but presently living in America and I am happy to sign the Guestbook. Thank a lot.
Hi. We (Paul and I) were delighted to find this site, and located Sean O'Leary through it. We expect to visit often. Our older daughter, Anna, was born in the Gambia.
I am waiting for an E-Mail !
It`s a very informative page and i think it would make any Gambian feel proud.Such a goodwill gesture is always appreciated and help of such kind is very welcome.
Once more I said it before and I will say it again, this is one of the most imformative site about the Gambia.I love listing to our National Anthem and I think every Gambian should download it and listen to it every morning . Its a good reminder that we should keep intouch with our friends and families back home.Sponsor a student at home it will be the best thing you have ever done in your life.
I love the site. I visited Gambia earlier in the year and hope to return at the end of the year. Beautiful place and people too. Made great friends there.
I'm very interested in the whole of Gambia.
I'm actually looking forward to hit this country, one day.
I would like to receive, or know about, all most recent information about the Gambia.

I Like the site. We have a site from Gambia to.
I can have you link to my site, if you will.
My another country is Gambia, and I have many good friend there.
In the Summer of 1995, I went on a study program with Austin
Peay State University (I read the entry that Kathy Jo Lewis
made about the same program. I wish I could meet her to swap
stories!) to West Africa. Majority of our trip was settled in Ghana, but one our first stops was to The Gambia. It was
one of the most beautiful places I have ever been in my entire life! Although I attended a university other than Austin Peay, I was very fortunate to find this program. It is still going strong year after year, and I have encouraged many students to go. This year, the program settled in The Gambia the entire summer, and my best friend went on my urging. To make a long story short, she came back IN LOVE and ENGAGED! They plan to marry next year. The both of us are going back to visit in December for two weeks. I can't wait!
Very informative site. Thinking of visiting Gambia in the future.
Real good site. Keep it up!!!
Learned of a Gambian student starting degree course at University College, Chester in the fall / autumn. Wanted some background info - your site gave me everything I needed. Thanks a lot.
verry good page
Full of memories.
My family stayed in the Gambia for two years as far back as 1973-75. We have many memories from all the friends we got
and what we experienced. Our kids were then 4 and 7 and they attended a British school, quite different from the Swedish they attended after coming home. 25 years ago - just imagine, would
love to go back some day.
My husband is from The Gambia and we both travel to his homeland via the Internet. Thanks to you, nothing is left out of our trip. When I vist The Gambia next year, I will already be familiar with many of the sites. Thanks a lot!
I am very excited to discover your web site! I spent a month in The Gambia during the summer of 1996 studying the culture, history and social institutions of West Africa with Austin Peay State University. While I stayed at Amies Beach Hotel, I made many beautiful friends with whom I still stay in contact. I hope to visit The Gambia again someday soon!

I've lived in the Gambia for 2 years and I think this HomePage is a wonderful memorial of my pleasant stay!
I was in The Gambia during the coup in 94 staying at the Badala Park Hotel, Although it was a rough time in teh Gambia it was a holiday i would never forget. Gambia is a very beautiful place and i am sure to return in the near future. I am writing an essay on political changes in The Gambia and have found this and other sites on the net to be very helpful in my quest for further information. thank-you
I enjoyed "surfing" your site. I'm trying to locate a Gambian friend who attended the
University of Hawai'i in the early 70's. Lost touch with after he was at SUNY Binghampton
campus, although I heard he was at Syracuse University 4 years ago. If any could help me
get in touch with him, I'd be grateful. His name is Karanta Kalley, and his area of study
was economics. Keep up the good work with your site, the recipe for the peanut butter stew
brought back memories.
I attended the "Roots Homecoming Festival" in June and look forward to many future visits.
I was a bit disappointed that I was unable to find more information on
the social aspects of the people and their traditional customs. For example
customs regarding marriage, family and religion.
I am shipping Methodist Hymnals to a church in Banjul and wanted to know the cheapest and best way to do that. I did not find any information on shipping. Maybe you could send me some information. I would appreciate it if you could. Thanks! Kay
I downloaded the Wolof dictionary and am hopeful it will help me learn Wolof before I return to The Gambia again next year. If anyone could help me find some tapes on Wolof, please e-mail me at email@example.com so I can purchase them. God bless!
I enjoyed the information on the Mandinka to English
Dictionary. My Husband speaks Mandinka a lot and
I will enjoy leaarning how to speak it. I also enjoyed the
