A Glimpse of Malabo, Equatorial Guinea
Yet despite all the faults, failures, and dysfunctions of the central government, the lives of average citizens of Malabo, Equatorial Guinea’s capital, continue to play out as they always have against the backdrop of Obiang’s rule. Despite the corruption, despotism, and poverty, life marches on in a form of silent resistance that is unique in and of itself
 I stumbled upon the short video below by Marc Michel when looking up information on EG given that I’m somewhat tempted to visit now that I’ll be living right next door in Cameroon. The video, while short, serves as a glimpse into everyday life in Malabo. What I love about it is that despite the evident juxtapositions of wealth and poverty, the beauty and distinctiveness of average life in Malabo manages to emerge.
