A continent is defined as a large unbroken land mass completely surrounded by water. The seven continents are North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. The island groups in the Pacific are often called Oceania, scientists consider them the remains of a continent.

Yellow Card (Carte Jaune) for Travellers Disease Protection

vaccinations required before entering countries in Africa and South America
updated as of January 2020

Known popularly as the Carte Jaune or Yellow Card, this is the international certificate of vaccination (ICV) as approved by the World Health Organization. Yellow Card is recognized internationally and may be required for entry to certain countries where there are increased health risks for travelers. Before departing for a foreign destination, a traveler must visit a healthcare provider and receive the required vaccinations, which the doctor must list on the form per the instructions and sign and date. The Yellow Card then must be kept with the traveler's passport as he or she travels, since it serves as a medical "passport" of sorts as proof of vaccination, including booster shots.

Currently, the only universally required vaccination is yellow fever. Yellow fever (yellow jack/yellow plague) is disease caused by the yellow fever virus and is spread by the bite of the female mosquito. It only infects humans, other primates and several species of mosquito. In countries where it is not required for entry, it may be a good idea to get the vaccination if travelling to endemic zones. After the primary immunization, boosters are required in ten-year intervals. One must receive this vaccination at least ten days prior to travel. Usual countries that require vaccinations are in South America (Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela) and Africa (Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia).

Budget Solo Week-end Trip in Rainy Comoros

110th on my continuing saga beyond the #lakbay100 journey
January 10 to 11, 2020

My 88th solo backpacking trip
22nd country to visit in African continent110th country visited on my journey beyond #lakbay1007th continent on my list and of course and usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departure. I did not research that much for this country due also on limited time and laziness.

Comoros has endured 20 coups or attempted coups since gaining independence from France in 1975. In 1997, the islands of Anjouan and Moheli declared independence from Comoros. In 1999, military chief Col. Azali seized power. He pledged to resolve the secessionist crisis through a confederal arrangement named the 2000 Fomboni Accord. Each island in the archipelago elected its own president and a new union president took office in May 2002. One of the world's poorest countries, Comoros is made up of three islands that have inadequate transportation links, a young and rapidly increasing population, and few natural resources.
