By the way, who would have thought Gabon had a one-letter country code like the biggest countries!

You should post the pictures in a larger format. You have to click on the + zoon above the picture.

For example, this is the picture of the border between Gabon and Cameroon in a larger format:

A little stretch of autoroute (motorway/freeway) around Libreville, the capital.

The biggest countries actually have 3-letter codes: Russia - RUS, Canada - CDN, United States - USA, China - PRC (or CHN), (Brazil - BR), Australia - AUS, India - IND etc. The smallest country (Vatican City) has V. 1-letter countries are pretty small actually. The biggest one is Zambia (Z), with only 750,000 sq km. The biggest one in terms of population is Japan (J), with 127m inhabitants.

Nice thread, btw.

Gabon has one of the best roads systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. Sad that it isn't as democratic as Ghana, Benin, Namibia, or Botswana. That certainly would have made it one of Africa's champions!
