I'm looking for an old friend, Karanta W.F. Kalley. We were friendss at the University of Hawaii's Manoa Campus in Honolulu, Hawaii. Karanta was working on his Master's degree in Economics and I was working toward a B.a. in Political Science while also being a student leader there. We last saw each other when I visited him at SUNY-Binghampton, where he was working toward his Ph.D. in Economics. Karanta termed me "an itinerant alcoholic" at that time, and that was certainly true. However, since then I've been without alcohol for 16 years and without cigarettes fro 9 1/2 years. I work on housing issues for the City of Boston and am a trade union activist. Let's try to get in touch, Karanta.
I was searching for a friend of mine who lives in Sweden when I came across the address and clicked on it. It is a wonderful site and it brings back memories of home. I have not been to the Gambia since I left in '90. This page reminded me of what my beloved country looks like. Thank you
I will be living in The Gambia for the next two years as a Peace Corps volunteer. Wish me luck!
I just want to send greetings to all the people there in The Gambia!be safe
hope to see you soon!
I am coming to Gambia in August and would like to correspond with other Americans that are currently living in Gambia, Senegal or Mauritania.
My husband is from Gambia and like to learn more about his culture.
Thanks A LOT for this beautiful site of yours. I worked in the Gambia as a VSO (UK) volunteer for two years, and it was great to have a look at the gallery, and the general info on this tiny but beautiful country. I have a personal page with photos from my time in The Gambia, which you are more than welcome to display if you wish to in this site. My page is http://perso.club-internet.fr/herve_ga/gallerie.html.
ANDY! WOW!! You are amazing. People from all over the globe checking out your site. And it looks GREAT! You ROCK!
I hope RPCVs see this and e-mail me. I wonder about you all! I am not in the gossip loop anymore, I live out in the boonies in Korea. I depend on Julie for all the news! Anyway I heard Chloe is married and I ran into Larry Dixon at the Amtrack station in Chicago. Small world right!?
Let me just say again, you have done a good job Andy. And when I get back home I'll send you some Baddiboo pictures.
And to any new viewers out there, I recommend a trip to the Gambia. You will meet the kindest people in the world. (And I've been around.. the globe I mean.. so I know what I am talking about!)

I found your web page to be quite interesting. I go to college with several students from the Gambia, and it was a wonderful way to learn more about their culture.
This site is great! Thanks to everyone who contributes and maintains! I just got an invite to serve as a Math teacher in The Gambia and was hungry for info. yeah!
It would be nice if a list of popular Gambian names and their meanings were listed on this site.
Now we have it: see the list of traditional names. Webmaster.
I am the newly appointed honorary consul of The Gambia in Budapest , Hungary.
I have to tell you that I learned a lot about this country with the help of your fascinating site. Thank you very much.
/ If somebody need any info / assistance regarding Hungary, pls. do hesitate to contact me. /

My family and I are moving to The Gambia in November. I am bringing my computer with. Can anyone tell me whether I can link up to the internet over there and how?
See the section on Internet Connectivity in Other Online Resources. Webmaster.
GREAT SITE! KEEP IT UP.
Very Good. Need to incorporate works in languages other than English into the bibliography (e.g. have sub-sections for works in French, German, etc.). Some of these works have English abstracts/summaries.
I offer free web space to anyone in the Gambia
I miss my country!
I love my people!
I just wanna go home.
ONE LOVE! Thanks for
putting this together.
i love it
ohh yeah because it blows
Gambia is too small and there's not enough information on current issues.
Well, we can't make the country any bigger, but take a look at the quarterly country reports and mailing lists for access to news on current events. Webmaster.
Great site!! I want to visit someday
a very beautiful and informative site!
Great site! Makes me homesick!!!
Wealth of information for an epidemiology project I am
working on for my Masters.
Looking for people familiar with Bakua.
Thank you for this site.
I left my heart and my soul in the gambia and i really have to go back very soon.
Greetings to all friends of The Gambia
Gambia is really nice and people are very friendly. I think it is the best place in the world but of course i am bias.
Thank you Andy for such a wonderful tribute to the motherland. Thanks everyone who had ever served as a peace coup or even been a tourist there. We appreciate all those chalks, shirts and sweets you willingly donate.

It is great to see the site. Neh na torop!
I served as a PCV in Kaur from 89-91 and I think I met you (Andy) when I came back to visit TG from London in April, 1992. I stayed with Tom Rendulich, Nina Kushner, Jenny and Tori, and Jill Bartles on that trip. Any news or addresses for any of them?
Do you know what the political situation is now in the post Jawara era? Any different?
My wife and I are probably moving to Ecuador in June.
It is an excellent website I Just love the Gambia. I visit the counrty often. I am interested in attending the 1998 roots festival and possibly giving a presentation in the area of African dance. Please send me more information about the featival. What are the exact dates for the featival? Is there an e-mail address for the minister of Culture? thanks Brenda
We find the page very impressive and educative. We hope that as Gambians putting our ideas together will lead us to a better development and understanding .
We believed putting close eyes on developmental affairs towards a common goal will bring us to a success.
Thanks for a fantastic job and keep it up.
The gambia is a lovely place and the people are wonderful. Anyone who has ever been there won't forget its friendly and generous people. A typical gambian might have only D20 but would readily give D19 to his/her friend in need.
I am going to sum up my feelings about the gambia the few lines below:
The Gambia is my home
That small piece of land facing the canary islands
Oh Gambia the land of the warm hearted poeple
I have travelled the seas and the lands,
beautiful places beautiful people most of them
but the gambia is my home.
Home sweet home it calls to me,
Try as I might that tiny land calls me
Am coming am coming I answer
Oh Gambia you are my home.
Dear old beautiful Gambia,
I will love you to my dying day
For oh Gambia you are my home.
This has been great seeing familiar names and places here! I just came back after 3 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I miss it every day! Thanks to this I can see it more often.
I'm just back from a vacation in Bakau, the Gambia. It was my second time there and I love it more and more! I came there to join a dancecourse, a man from the Gambia John Jatta (Kol Jatta) had organized it. I didn't live in a hotel, I lived in a compaun called Barrekunda.
I'd love to chat a bit with someone who's been in Bakau, or even lived in Barrekunda. So please, male me!
Love from Malin
Very informative. Helps me a lot with my presentations in school.
One of the best sites I have come across, we hope to contribute to recipes and provide local names for fruits,vegetables etc. I was in the Gambia from 1883-86 working at MRC. Radio call sign C53FG any e-mails very welcome.Tony.
I worked in the Gambia in 1986-87 as a shrimp boat captain for National Partnership Interprises and would like to return.I keep looking through this site hoping to see some e-mail addresses in the gambia. Surely technology will make this easier in the future. I enjoy reading the message boards. Maybe I will see some old friends there soon. Nice site, keep up the good work.
This has been a great seeing some familiar names and places here! This is woderful. I just came back after a 3 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I miss it everyday! Thsnks to this I can see it more often!
Great information. We are also looking for current information on Gambia's government, economy, culture, etc.
This site was no doubt the most informative and perfect for me to complete my little kit I'm designing for a special friend of mine.
Andy - you are so cool!!!

Thanks for this wonderful homepage on the Gambia
Actually I was looking for a place to learn Wolof and so I stumbled over you.
Do you know of any news-site's of the Gambia or for that matter of other West-African countries or nations in the Horn of Africa?
I'd like to find as many as possible,because I'm trying to get a newsletterlike paper together for refugees of those countries here in the Netherlands.
Off course i'd like this for other countries as well,but I'm concentrating on Africa for now.
By the way,other languages then English are welcome.
Preferably French,German,Dutch or Spanish,but I can probably find interpreters for for instance Arabic or Fula or so. (;
I am tracing my family history, my greatuncle HAROLD WHITESIDE. He was a catholic priest out in the Gambia between 1926-36 and a army chaplain 1941-46.He taught in a mission school in Bathurst and did missionary work up the Gambia river at Macarthy .As anybody any info on him he brought a gambian to england to train as a teacher I think his name was SAM JARR any info welcome.Like the site interesting.
Anyone out there who knows Manna Village, CRD ???
I stay there two or three times a year: would love to exchange stories !
