Comoros  

The Comoros is a country made of three islands set in the Mozambique Channel between Tanzania and Mozambique. The islands were colonies of France until 1974. After gaining independence, the country has endured more than 30 years of political chaos.

The Comoros are tropical islands with beautiful beaches. Unfortunately, the potential for political violence keeps tourists away. Comoros is sometimes called the “perfume islands” because many flowers and spices used in making perfume are grown here. Vanilla is another major crop.
