Central Africa

Central Africa, including, is the common term corruption, coup, murder, riots, poverty, plague, words that can be used to describe the countries most. I have spent a lot of time online to find the things that tell the most about the country, and these are things that I hope will make you a little wiser about how extensive the world is – also in the different parts of the country. What is important to point out is that it is the strongest survivors in Africa who are most important, because leaders of the countries should preferably be strong – and it becomes a problem when they are corrupt, or government employees try to to overthrow the leader of the country. The latter, of course, is not a problem when the president of a country is an abusive corrupt man who deserves to be overthrown!

But no matter how incredible the history has been in Central Africa, the countries are still unbelievably admirable and beautiful – not least because of the beautiful landscapes, but also because of the culture – the passion some of the poor have to survive every day… But it is unfortunately just a facade that has to hide all the misery.

Africa is the second largest continent with a land area of ​​30.3 million. km², which makes up 20% of the land masses on earth. Africa stretches a total of 8000 km from north to south with the equator approximately in the middle and with sea on all sides except by the Suez Canal in Egypt. The climate is tropical around the equator and subtropical farthest north and south. The mean temperature is therefore high across the continent, but the amount and pattern of precipitation varies greatly from rainforest to desert areas, from coast to inland, from north to south. In 2005, Africa’s total population was estimated at over 900 million, ie 14% of the world’s population. The continent has more states than any other continent with its 47 continental states and six island states. The Eve theory assumes that all humans are descendants of early hominids that lived in central East Africa 7 million years ago. The oldest human finds are 200,000 years old.

The area has an area of ​​28 square kilometers and has 75,861 residents. The residents speak Spanish or tamazight, a Berber language. Catholic or Sunni Muslims. Morocco claims the city and another autonomous city of Melilla and a number of Spanish islands.

Ceuta was conquered by King João I of Portugal in 1415 and remained a Portuguese possession until 1668 by the Treaty of Lisbon, when King Afonso VI of Portugal handed over the colony to King Carlos II of Spain. Nevertheless, Ceuta retained its flag, which has the city flag of Lisbon as its background and the Portuguese coat of arms.

Bouvet Island

Bouvet Island (Norwegian: Bouvetøya ) is an uninhabited volcanic island in the southern part of the Atlantic Ocean, south-southwest of Cape of Good Hope (South Africa). It is almost completely covered by glaciers and difficult to access. It has no port calls, only anchorages off the coast.

The island was discovered in 1739 by the French naval officer, Jean-Baptiste Charles Bouvet de Lozier, after whom the island was named. No one claimed the island until 1825 when the British flag was hoisted.

In 1928, the United Kingdom relinquished its claim to the island in favor of Norway, which had occupied the island the year before. In 1971, Bouvet Island and the surrounding waters were designated a nature reserve. Since 1977, Norway has had an automated meteorological measuring station on the island.


Melilla is an autonomous Spanish city on the coast of North Africa. The enclave was managed as part of the province of Málaga before it became autonomous on 14 March 1995. The city is a free port and the main source of income is fishing.

Morocco claims the city, along with the other autonomous city of Ceuta and a number of Spanish islands. These territories were never part of Spanish Morocco and Melilla has been Spanish since 1497. When Spain granted the Spanish colony independence in 1956, these territories did not join the new state of Morocco, consisting of the former Spanish Morocco and French Morocco.

After the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, the island lost its function as a stopover on the sea routes to East Asia.

In addition to being a well-known destination for especially French tourists, the island became known after a severe outbreak of a special tropical disease transmitted by the chikungunya mosquito. In 2007, when the disease was at its peak, a third of the island’s population was infected.
