Luanda



If you move here, you can leave behind your:

VW Golf. - Mar 23, 2017
Expectations of a normal life. - Apr 23, 2016
Bike, winter clothes, and expectation of going on a safari in Angola (the local park - Quissama - is expensive and poorly stocked). - Mar 28, 2015
Idea this is the Africa of the movies. This is a country riddled with corruption still emerging from a civil war with Luanda having been built for 300,000 people but now populated by more than 3 million. They killed off and ate all their big game animals during the civil war. You will see people passed out or dead along the road. The housing quality is very poor ... local staff regularly are dealing with the loss of power and water for days. - Aug 31, 2014
Binoculars-- no safaris here and no animals left to see after the 30+ year civil war. Bicycle: streets are dangerous and no parks BBQ Grill: You will live in an apartment and have no space to grill out Extra stuff: Your apartment will have no storage space, so be thoughtful about what you bring - Jul 11, 2013
