Bom Bom Island, Sao Tome and Principe, 2014
We had a beach day at Bom Bom Island. This tiny island, in Africa’s second smallest nation, is just north of the equator about half way up the west coast of Africa.
Political unrest, economic problems, corruption, Ebola, and pirates are all nearby, but we did not deal with any of them today.
This island is not immune to mosquitoes and malaria, but even they didn’t show up this afternoon. (We are taking our pills.)
