 Mar 03 2022  

Guinea is a country in West Africa, bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. It's known for the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, in the southeast. The reserve protects a forested mountain range rich in native plants and animals, including chimpanzees and the viviparous toad. On the coast, the capital city, Conakry, is home to the modern Grand Mosque and the National Museum, with its regional artifacts. At the entrance of Guinea’s pavilion at expo 2020 Dubai, visitors are welcome with two giants wooden sculptured thrones. It is said that anyone who sits on the throne and makes a wish it will come true. With Fatoumata Conde, we had a guided tour around the pavilion to discover the richness of Guinea’s culture and its diversity.
