Angola's Provinces and Smaller Cities | Cidades do Interior de Angola

Here are some new photos from Angola´s provinces (they are mainly all taken in 2003 and 2004)...but what surprises me is that a lot remains intact or has been restored...more investment is also trickling inn, I have heard and read....well there are still no glitzy high-rises but the need and emphasis is and should be on other things now.

I start with Lubango











Those who have been to Portugal (Lisbon) know these platform from where you can have an overview over the city...

























a public garden






Well, this cine-theater has certainly seen brighter days but the photos dates back from 2003, it is probably has changed.

It looks like both Angola and Mozambique inherited from Portugal very good infrastructures. Buildings are nicely designed, parks and streets that are wide and orderly are well taken cared of by the present governments.

In comparison, Congo has to fix their infrastructures. Some of their cars and buses have already reached their lives and need to be retired.

Well, my last posting is again misplaced in this thread because it is in Luanda and not its provinces. I could just slap myself for being so absent-minded

At any rate, I believe Angola and Mozambique have great futures. Their governments are well organized and working.

Lochinvar,... me, too.... although great challenages still exist...but I think Angola´s take-off will by far exceed that of Mozambique because Angola has a lot of more money and investors flocking to that country than it is the case for Mozambique...I am not well informed on Mozambique, so correct me if you know better.

I had no idea other Angola cities looked so intact. I figure that because of the war only Luanda had descent infrastructure and that the rest of the country was shit. This is an Eye opener.

Naijalove, yes Angola truly has very nice Black women (I have seen it myself)...and there are many many nice mulatta girls (black and white), too!



You are to blame, investment trickles down to the provinces (slowly) and as you can see a lot of the beautiful architecture is being restored. One thing I like about lusophone countries is that the Portuguese build like crazy (but maybe because the colonial period was very long and intense ,500 years, and due to the massive Portuguese community in Angola), in Angola you have a lot of very well planned cities. Restoration work is going on there (I have been told). ...however, you have also cities like Huambo (former "Nova Lisboa"/"New Lisbon") which have regrettably been heavily damaged. War raged wildly around that area....but investment and public spending is also trickling down to Huambo.
