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...

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

yeah that's why i am saying they are old. It is kinda hard to find new pics of LubangoThere are some images from the later half of 2007 also. Some sets are composed of 2004-2006 for the intro, many are from 2006 - 2007 and many were taken from blogs and recent visits, late 2007.
Do you have pics of Kunji? My family is from that area. anyways, peace out.Yes, recent images of Lubango is difficult to find. Luanda for instance new photos are released from a number of sources perhaps weekly. For Lubango, I'd say within a 4-5 month radius a new set of images are released from a number of sources. Cabinda, being the most difficult to cover.
I have seen all those but I also wanna see other cities apart from the capitqls in these african countries. Angola is not the only country that has other cities.^^ Yes, this is strictly a "Lubango" thread. About Kunji, sure, we'll see in the future.
angcammoc, there are plenty of galleries that I and others had opened representing other African cities and many members done a splendid job in contribution. :lol:
There is currently a large Dakar, Gaborone thread opened, as well as other cities being represented on this section with it's respective galleries.
How about you take the iniciative to check the pictures I have contributed in other african cities without sounding a little ignorant. How about thatIn the Lubango thread one can except only pictures of this city. Makes sense right?
But if you want to see pictures from other African cities, besides the capitals, why not take the initiative yourself?
Creat those threads if you can find pictures to show. How about that?
