The title of his thread says it "Angola, it's not like they said". We also heard many stories. We found a different Angola. People so friendly and helpfull it makes your eyes water. And we are from South Africa, a former agressor that invaded Angola and destroyed and killed as one is prone to do in war. The current regime was assisted by Portugal from inception and also with training during the war. Portugal is now by far it's biggest trading partner. I seriously doubt that you will be less than welcome. Why Angola? Because there are no roads, no infrastructure, a place where one is dependent on yourself, no one else. It is where life tastes so much sweeter, because it is not taken for granted.
