I got this picture from a webpage and and it shows the beginning of big land reclamation area in Luanda. I will quote here: " Angola´s latest investment - A sand island where they build a billion dollar hotel à la Dubai". unquote. We do need the help of Angolans here to verify that for us! It sounds like :eek2: Information dates back to November 2006.
Luanda nightlife: photo taken in central Luanda at a nightclub where Angolans and foreigners mix to enjoy performances of traditional dances including the semba (precursor of the Brazilian samba), kizomba and kuduru.
Stormshadow, are you sure that those pics are from 2007 or only POSTED IN 2007 and taken some time earlier ´cos some of the buildings on the shoreline look like the were in the early stages of construction. Maybe the photos were taken sometime earlier and only posted in 2007.
Yes indeed Stormshadow, the photo above with the "Welcome Bienvenue" etc is in fact Aeroporto 4 de Fevereiro, Luanda's International Airport. Thank God they are building a new airport, because this airport is completely outdated, partly dilapidated, tiny, and old. But everytime I land on it, I am ecstatic because I have just arrived in the motherland, and I have many memories of this stupid airport, so even tho I bashed it, I will definitely miss it
