Preface for Equatorial Guinea

f0079502_0263414.jpgAs I had some conversations about Equatorial Guinea with my colleague a few weeks ago, I started reading a book, The Wonga Coup: Guns, Thugs and a Ruthless Determination to Create Mayhem in an Oil-Rich Corner of Africa .

Somehow or with obvious reason for some, this tiny country in Africa has been a hot (literally and metaphorically) place in the African continent.

A friend I met today happened to know about this place and we had an intriguing talk about the country. Before going too much into depth as I am still in the process of reading a book, here is one trivia from him; Although it's named as "Equatorial Guinea", the Equator isn't on Equatorial Guinea! Actually, the country is in north hemisphere!
