Welcome to the "Live From The Gambia" blog.
Here I hope to be able to tell you about what's going on in The Gambia, from the point of view of an average guy living and working here. For people living abroad who want to keep up with what's happening at home, this blog will try to bridge the gap between reading stories in the media, and actually being here to experience things. For those at home, maybe this will give you a fresh perspective on things, or at least provoke some discussion around issues.
This is not a political blog, which means we will steer clear of any politics, as much as possible. It is also not a blog set up to teach you anything (apart from maybe what it's like to live here), or to get you to start believing in anything - please feel free to disagree with whatever I post, at any time. The tone will stay light at all times, and I would love to hear your comments on anything posted here.
I hope you enjoy it.
