Togo Geography

If you skimmed the Wiki articles, but all of those town names seem to have too many consonants and keep blurring in your head, this is for you. Let's do some basics.

Togo is in West Africa. 

It is sandwiched between Ghana and Benin. 

There are five departments (like counties). From north to south we have; Savanes, Kara, Centrale, Plateaux and Maritime.

The Route Nationale (RN) is the main road that runs north/south along the entire country. If you are on the route it's easy to travel, if not, well, your journey will take even longer. 

And obviously, there are many towns and villages all over the country.  

Togo is about the size of West Virginia, or 2.5 times the size of New Jersey. 

And here's the flag of Togo. I think it's pretty :)
