Sao Tome,



One of the best indicators of how poor a country is, is the exchange rate per the U.S. dollar. For Ghana, Togo, Benin it was 600+ to 1 dollar. For Sao Tome it was 22,800 to a dollar. Our ship was only the second passenger ship to vist the island. Needless to say, they were not experiences handling a lot of tourists arriving all at once, The country gained independence from Portugal in 1975.
