...And everything else spectacular you can find in this most spectacular country. On a video call with my mother the other day whilst stopping over in Huambo on my way from Camacupa, I showed her the colourful attire of vendors selling fruit, drinks, ... Read more >

Centre of Angola

Tuesday, 4 Jul 2023 | Views [178]

Leaving Huambo behind, I wanted to take a trip to the geographical centre of Angola. A minibus would get me to Kuito which, from what I saw from the bus window, looks like an attractive town. Getting to Camacupa (sometimes spelled "Kamacupa") involved ... Read more >

Taking on Angola continues, as I'm far from done with this fascinating country. After saying thank you to Camil for hosting me and getting a bifana for breakfast, I ordered a lift via Heetch: Angola's answer to Uber and Lyft, to the outskirts of Lobito.... Read more >

Art Deco in Lobito

Thursday, 29 Jun 2023 | Views [167]

After a night in Luanda to rest up I made my way south again. First I stopped briefly at Miraduoro da Lua and then at a police checkpoint I was picked up by a banker named Gonzalo. He would shout me a sandwich, a couple of beers, and a litre of wine.... Read more >

Pedras Negras

Saturday, 24 Jun 2023 | Views [193]

I’m still wondering…how the hell was I the only foreign visitor at Kalandula Falls? If it were Victoria Falls I’d be jockeying for space with many other visitors and I likely couldn’t fly Juliett (my drone). Yesterday I ended ... Read more >

Quedas de Kalandula

Thursday, 22 Jun 2023 | Views [200]

Luanda isn't as bad or as expensive as some people make it out to be, and I certainly felt safer walking round Luanda than round Cape Town or even Windhoek. However, I didn't come to Angola to spend all of my time in Luanda. After quickly arranging ... Read more >

Luanda Highlights

Monday, 19 Jun 2023 | Views [258]

Luanda gets an unfairly bad rep, and most people who criticise Angola's capital have never been here. Cranes and skyscrapers dominate the skyline but there are more highlights and standout sights than in many other capital cities. The other day after ... Read more >

Questioned and... Appreciated

Sunday, 18 Jun 2023 | Views [169]

Angola doesn't get many visitors. Most foreigners who are here are working, not taking pictures. Police, soldiers, and the average local wonder why someone would travel from all the way around the world to take a photo of a building. Today ... Read more >

Taking on Angola

Friday, 16 Jun 2023 | Views [220]

It looks like a creature struggling to be accepted but reaching out and asking for a hug or a handshake; that's what Angola is shaped like. It is one of my favourite country shapes. "Why would you want to go to Angola?" one may wonder. Firstly, it's ... Read more >
