Fantasia Africa Grandeur !
End 70´s begin 80´s Industry took a big leap ! Larger towns with manufaturing plants appeared out of nowhere. Late 80´s there came a halt to all to all this activity. Market was fully provided for. Growing world crisis kept the country in stasis ! Goverment personal was well fed; they had the luxuries of western power. Militaire backed up the regime, as we all know in those african states !
Hi-Teck arrived in Chinguako !
The 90´s gave a new kind of colonialisme in this case the intrest of china in the extraction of minerals and iron ore for the fast growing computer industry. Alluminium, koper and silicium and other metals became very precious. A trade agreement was made in wich China would take of all railway and harbour activities. Dubious deal or not ?
Some resort the president build to please the chinese guests !
Marvelously build by local workers with a large assistence of chinese craftmen !
Some updates :
Grand Presidential palace has arrived !
Local residents where very appoled to the extension of the airport runway, despite stiff resistence the plan went ahead !
Presidential summer house got a total overhaul and shine as ever ! One will recognize this famous french estate !
What would be source of income to pay for all those luxeries ?
Quit some rich guest come here, the only casino within 500 miles, convenietly located near the airport !
The president enjoys the luxeries left by the french government to the full. All is going well for the state, citizens maybe lesswell of for the time being but having no other option they just have to deal with it !
Thats it for this journal, hope to see you back in the next one !
Mymjp Thank you very much. This week Journal was quit a effort to assemble ! French house is the Cour the Cheverny wich is located in the Loire valley near Blois. Casino is nice in a modern setting, i am still looking for something more nostalgic like the Monaco casino, others are to large or the income is fouled .
Kim Sunway Thank you for your comment. Airport is quit small, planes are just about DC8/9 so no widebody planes allowed, total replacement maybe only option but a suiteble place isn´t available. Nobody likes to have a airport in one´s back garden unless for the jobs provided !
Dirtguru Thank you. Allthought the country is fictional it´s largely based on the Congo Brazzaville Area !
