Sunny Seychelles



Terry, the globe-trotter, who is originally from Seychelles but now lives and studies in Russia sent me this postcard from his home country on a trip there. Seychelles consists of 115 islands spanning a tiny 451 square kilometers and is home to 84 000 people. Seychelles’ economy is mostly based on tourism but the government has worked hard in order to diversify the economy somewhat into other sectors as well. Seychelles has the second highest GDP per capita of any African country (after Equatorial Guinea,) which is great, however, the income inequality that exists here means that not all people can enjoy a lifestyle of that level. At any rate, I think it’s truly a great country! Thank you Terry for the awesome postcard!
