A day in Togo

Togo – West African nation on the Gulf of Guinea and is known for its hilltop villages and palm lined beaches. It’s one of the smallest countries in Africa. In the 18th century it was a major trading centre for purchasing slaves – earning Togo the name “Slave Coast”. After WW 1 rule was transferred from Germany to France. The official language is French. Togo gained independence in 1960.
