you will need to connect to the web during your stay
in The Gambia. Servers used to be slow dial-up are now
operating at '4G' speeds at a minimum, but can still
be slow during most of the daytime. For best results,
go early in the day and save your work or long emails
often—noting is worse than a power outage right before
sending detailed email report of your adventures. Most
places have generators, but sometimes they take a few
seconds (or minutes) to kick on. Prices for surfing
the web are fairly cheap, about D20 for half an hour
in most places.
