I am now upside down!


Gabon is so far intriguing. The country is relatively rich, it exports lots of wood and petrol but produces nothing else. It seems all the food is imported and prices increase as we go further from border with Cameroon (the 1.5L water bottle in a shop is at 1.5 € now). It also seems there are more West Africans than Gabonese within the small 1.5 million population for a land surface half the size of France.

Since entering Gabon, we have been cycling in the highest jungle density with very few villages, and very rarely cellular network. Now in the southern hemisphere (finally!), we are continuing through the Lope national park onto Congo.
