Piquinino na tamanho - garandi na fama. Guinea-Bissau's motto translates as Small in size - big in reputation. On the West African coast, wedged
in between Senegal and Guinea-Conakry, Guinea-Bissau is about the size of Switzerland and has just 1.1 million people. Small size is undisputed, but
Guinea-Bissau's big reputation is still developing. As a former Portuguese colony, surrounded by former French colonies, and a mainly animist country
surrounded by majority Muslim countries, Guinea-Bissau's unique, laid back character is a treat for those traveling through West Africa. Although
there are beautiful beaches, fantasy tropical islands, and fishing and hunting, the main attraction in Guinea-Bissau is the people.

Guinea-Bissau is just recovering from a war, which shattered the country from June of 1998 until May of 1999. The international airport reopened in July, and all major land borders have reopened. Life in the countryside, and even the capital Bissau, where most fighting was centered, has normalized. Even as people struggle to rebuild and cope with post-war
inflation, the dance clubs have reopened, and traditional festivities continue. A transitional civilian government is in place, and elections will take place November 28, 1999.
More information will be added to this page in the future, so please check back, or e-mail me directly if you are planning a trip to Guinea-Bissau and need information.
