Guinea

“The impression one gets when arriving at Guinea by plane is, however, totally different. The zone of contact between land and sea appears extremely complex. There are inumerous islands and arms of the sea, canals in all directions, a large border invaded by the tide and disclosing a muddy area where rivers and brooks wind about in harmonious meanders.”
