HAMMELKAR, great great stuff! Really! Thanks a lot! We are all looking forward to keeping us updated!

But I am still waiting for the reply of my two OTHER questions that I´ve posed?

What about Luanda Sul?

What about Luanda Bay project (land reclamation which has started), can you give us some more insight into that? Please tell us something about it

....and I ´d like to add one more

What about the ultra-modern library building which is u/c in Luanda?


Let´s bear in mind, Luanda has just started..... in ten years time Luanda will the "Sao Paulo of Africa"

PLEASE KEEP UP YOUR VERY GOOD WORK, HAMMELKAR!

Luanda Sul its growing faster too; but as you know investments in that area of the city its no easy. Any way its a new city growing on that side of the city, lot of people have already change homes to south zone. The library place is already fenced up, but the terrain is being use for other major projects to store thare water pumps, soils, machinery, etc. So perhaps may be only in the middle of 2008 or late in 2009 they start thinking on the library project.
Due the heavy rains that are falling in the urban area most of the projects on the city are stop or in a low pace.
But the project is going well dont worry.

Matthias, the area reserved to this project is already fenced up and to help you about is loacation, its near Hotel Alvalade. I think before the end of this year the project will start cose some surveys are being made by constructors companys on the field. There are some little problems because some ppl used to live in the area reserved to the project and now they expect some compensation. The same problem to Kinaxi Shopping Center. But for the last one some modifications are being made to the initial project (looks like the ground floor will be for stores and the fst, snd and third will be for offices. The project will also have a cinema complex and restaurants; and garage). But for now still on studie. But the place is also already fenced and protected.
Belas Shopping is marvelous, spectacular, pretty; state of the art.
I hope bring you some pictures very soon, just give me some time for that.

Welcome to the forum and a great set of recent pictures! Thank you for contributing.

Me and Matt were once talking about how nice it would be if we knew of someone that is from the region and would help out with posting recent photos. Thanks again and welcome.

This song always reminds me of Luanda. My mind gets cast back to the pre-war era when it was in full swing........

Vai, vai, vai pra Aruanda
Vem, vem, vem de Luanda
Deixa tudo que é triste
Vai, vai,vai pra Aruanda
Lá não tem mais tristeza
Vai que tudo é beleza
Ouve essa voz que te chama

There's a land, Aruanda
Diamond sand, Aruanda
Silver stars on the hill top
Take me to Aruanda

Lots of fish in the stream near
Lots of dangers to dream there
Golden sun in the valley
Take me to Aruanda

There where nobody worries
There where nobody hurries
Easy life waving you're welcome
Take me there

Leave my sadness behind me
Let sweet paradise find me
Heaven waits over yonder
Take me to Aruanda

Hammelkar mo kamba, let me be one more person to welcome you to this forum. I found out that college and contributing daily to this forum dont go hand in hand, so it's great to have another Angolan actually IN the country.

Now about the Zimbo tower, where exactly in Luanda is it? What bairro?

Aquele Abraco

Thanks Blacklion;
About the Zimbo Tower, the project is located on the road: "Avenida de Portugal"(ex. karl Max road), close to the Portuguese Embassy and the "Pastelaria Primor. Just in front the entry of a tunel on the same road coming up from Mutamba.

PS: Today is bankholiday so join the day men.

That´s soooo true! He is indeed Heaven-send! Stormshadow and me were discussing that a while ago that it would be very nice to have someone in Luanda who can keep us (the world out) there updated from time to time!

People its great to know that u really feel the transformation thats going on in Luanda.
Some say that in future this city will be like São Paulo, etc.
But only i can tell you guys is that this city will never be the same.
Still lot of problems to solve, but if we resist the war why can we wait to see this city in the place she use to be in the past.
Lets just hope the best for Luanda or as i always call for "Metropole Sul"

PS: Lisbon is the "Metropole Norte"
