Sao Tome and Principe with a difference
Officially named Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe, or just Sao Tome Islands for short, this archipelago is located in Gulf of Guinea approximately 180 miles off african west coast. It's made up of two major volcanic islands surrounded by eight small islets, of which 6 are inhabited. With a total land area of 1001 sq km and a population of 150,000 inhabitants, Sao Tome and Principe is the smallest country in africa, after Seischelles. Former portuguese colony was once home to thriving coffee and cocoa plantations and served as a hub for trans-Atlantic slave trade.
