Arriving in Africa

8 Nov

It’s been two days since I’ve arrived to Equatorial Guinea.

Two days of humid heat and a 360° head-spinning exercises.

I’ve started taking my malaria pills. Mosquito spray. Mosquito wipes. Got a fabulous gift – a big electrical mosquito racket… and ended up catching an old fashioned cold on the way over. I have enough drugs to treat an elephant for Malaria and stomach problems, but, there is absolutely nothing in my bag, to treat a common cold.

After a day spent in Malabo, the capital, meeting hubby’s friends, drinking 2 Champagne magnum bottles, avoiding all human transformation into a mop, we have arrived yesterday, Sunday afternoon to Bata, on the continent.

It is sunny with a very bright grey sky down here. It is hot. Very very hot ! And humid. Very very humid ! After a little stroll outside, I’m back home, bonding with the A.C and hoping to see my hair flatten itself out again… A month of frizz awaits me…

Tomorrow : Getting a mobile phone in EG

    I do hope hubby will see ‘true Sandra’ with her real frizzy red hair, I’m sure he’ll too appreciate it.
    Sinon, keep up the fight against the bugs, pity we didn’t have such a toy in the old days!

      Et tu es fière d’être a l’origine de mon manque de beurre, de fromages, charcuteries, Kinder et autres ??? Eh bah dis donc !! 😉
