Here is another story from Equatorial Guinea. The writer is Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel. A trained nurse, he turned to writing. In 2011 he moved into exile, to Barcelona, Spain. It is mentioned in the notes next to the story that in 2011 the president of Spain visited Equatorial Guinea, but in 2011 Spain did not have a president. The country is a monarchy.
