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.
