Bonjour mes amis!

What a wonderful surprise I got today when I opened my mailbox!! An unexpected card from Guinea! Thank you so much Madelaine! I was really happy!

Guinea, officially the Republic of Guinea, is a country in West Africa. Formerly known as French Guinea, it is today sometimes called Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from its neighbour Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea. Guinea has a population of 10.5 million and an area of 245,860 square kilometres.

Did you know?
The official language is French though many ethnic groups such as the Fula, Mandingo and Susu speak their own native languages.

I send love!
