SAT-3 - Libreville 2005
During next week I will be in Libreville and it will be a pity if I have not some extra time to take this navette to Pointe Denis and taste the Castle Beer.

This is my last post before leaving for Libreville, capital of Gabon, one more country I have a chance to visit in Africa, which history is related with Portuguese navigators.In fact, around 1470, the Portuguese navigators found the Ogooué estuary and started the consequent trade with coastal marchants for slaves. Later they were followed by the Dutch, English and French traders, which by the late 18th century gained a dominant position.See more about Gabon history, here.

Libreville - Il faut dire qu'on mange bien au Gabon. Voici une bonne sugestion: Crocodile avec banana et la délicieuse bière locale Régab.I recommend all beer drinkers to have a seep of Regab. It possesses a light taste to the mouth and tongue and is definitely the best way to survive during warm and moist evenings in hot Gabon... (photo Isabelle Kubica, Sep 2005).
