Saturday, 16 Oct… Time to swim in the ocean. I mean man, I am living and working on an island. A swim in the ocean is free (well almost… need to get there first, driving today). So, 2 friends and I pack our masks, fins and snorkels and headed to Sipopo, about 40 min drive from downtown Malabo. Sipopo will soon have a 5 Star Hotel, Conference Center and much more. So before access is restricted or costs a parking fee we decided to explore now! We swam out to a small island about 300 meters off the coast and explored the lava-rock formations. There were thousands of beautiful fish, of all shapes and sizes! We ran into 2 fishermen is dug-out canoes, with nothing more than fishing line and hooks. Who needs 100 dollar fishing poles? At least not these two guys. After a strong dose of sunshine and a few mouthfulls of sea water we decided to call it a day.
