Did you know that the official language of this small African
country is Spanish? That's because the Spanish ruled for about 200 years,
ending in 1968. A recent oil
boom has given this NW African country one of the most robust economies
in the region, even though little of that money seems to make it very
far beyond the hands of the government officials. For travel advice, history,
