Things To Do In Andorra

Andorra is lank-locked tightly between France and Spain deep into the center of the Pyrenees. It is really only 180 square-miles, which tends to make it the 6th smallest country in Europe. There is suggestion that the name comes from the Arabic al-Dorra, which signifies forest but little is definitely known of its name.

There are now seven parishes that all each have their own mini-governments and govern law and order for their inhabitants.

Until that day, private companies such as the Brazilian company, Petrobas, and American company, Exxon Mobile, had been allowed to amass much wealth by exploiting Bolivia’s bountiful natural gas reserves. Morales reflected this idea, remarking, “the time has come, the awaited day, a historic day in which Bolivia retakes absolute control of our natural resources...
