Guinea Equatorial

By: Jordan Carlson

Guinea Equatorial was discovered in 1474 by a portuguese navigator and it later became a large source of slaves to the colonies. It ceded to Spain in 1778 but it wasn't till the late 19th century that the spanish started settling there. Not much is heard about this trilingual  country that speaks French, Portuguese, and of course Spanish because the state closely monitors what comes out of the media

This country has a population of roughly 676,000 people living there, but they all don't speak Spanish. Actually Spanish is one of three official languages, it shares the throne with Portuguese and French. The capitol of Guinea Ecuatorial is actually one of the best places to go to. The capitol (Bioko Island) is famous for its rainforest and volcanoes. This 11,000 square mile country uses the French currency of Francs. If you have time you might stop by one of this beautiful countries neighbors, Gabon or Camerun.

In Guinea Equatorial they have unorthodox foods that you and I would think are weird to eat like cassava root, but they also have things we eat all the time like bananas and rice. Palm wine and malamba are both very popular drinks they have in Guinea. But when those things aren't available they often fish and hunt for their dinners.
