Tell us a little something about your Country ?
Despite my country only being 27 miles long and 14 miles wide with a population of about 160 thousand, the rich culture and friendly people make it an ideal country to grow up in and to come spend a vacation. Everyone is regarded as family, even if you are a tourist! It's a melting pot of culture, diversity and beauty.
