In case you're interested, Río Muni, located just north of the equator, is made up of lowland along the southwest coast of Africa. In 1778, Portugal ceded some off-shore islands, and also the commercial rights to a part of the African coast that included present-day Río Muni, to the Spanish. Hoping to export Africans as slaves to their American possessions, the Spanish sent settlers to the islands, but they died of yellow fever, and by 1781 the region was abandoned by the Europeans. In 1963, Spain finally granted the country (renamed Equatorial Guinea) a limited amount of autonomy, and on Oct. 12, 1968, it received complete independence.
