Notes from Equatorial Guinea
I was s
o excited for my second trip to Africa - being able to return after my amazing last visit. I was wondering how this would be
different, what I would see. When we arrived, I immediately noticed the
construction -- it seemed like a whole new city was being built,
including my hotel. And it was lovely, with a view overlooking the
pool and lots of greenery. So peaceful.
There were dinners and conferences, speeches introducing us to the history of this former Spanish colony. I saw a lot of pride and an interesting custom: no dessert, but instead platters of fruit served after every meal. I was grateful not to have the temptation of sugary sweets and thus less pounds to keep off.
Africa has its share of talented designers - what would a vacation for Marlo be without fashion? La Vie Couture put on a show of gorgeous dresses and of course I put on my own show, featuring Lous Vuitton.
