- George, I did takea photo of that list. I'd say it was somewhere between 50 and 60 countries, but I'd have to look at the photo to be sure.

Dallen, did you perchance take a photo of that list of countries? Do you recall roughly how many?
- Very interesting. What was the status of the fort from 1961 till 1985? Is there any source that says whether the Portugal was the only country not to recognizes Dahomey's overtake?
Btw, what was the status of Cabinda? Could we say that before Angola gained independence, Cabinda and Angola were 2 different territories?
If my accounts are correct, prior to 70's Portugal bordered 17 countries. Spain, Senegal, Guinea, Dahomey (Benin), Congo, Zaire, Zambia, South-West Africa, South Africa, Swaziland, Southern Rhodesia, Malawi, Tanzania, Indonesia, India and PR China. Perhaps the names of the countries are not correct for the time, but you get the point about territories that Portugal bordered.
Goyta, the Swedish/Finnish island you have mentioned is Market. Another interesting example of very short border is Penon de Velez de la Gomera.
