|Angola Picture Gallery by Constantin: 12:54pm On May 25, 2006|
I would like to open a thread on Angola which has unfortuntely been set back because of the nasty war but which has entered a period of boom during the past years. Investors are flocking to that once beautiful country and I think that the world will be surprised by Angola´s future because it really looks very bright (even outside of oil sector). Some people may wonder why I am interested in Angola as a Nigerian, but I have two good friends who come from this country , so I also dedicate this thread to them
I WILL START WITH SHOWING PICTURES ON ANGOLA BEFORE THE WAR
THIS WAS HOW LUANDA LOOKED LIKE IN THE 70´S
this photo reminds me somehow of the old movies you see from Italy,
THEY HAD MALLS IN THE EARLY 70´S
lokk at the public gardens they had then,
the streets really lokk very latina
have a look, they had a autodrome in the 70´s and this one is till there,
this photo is from nowadays
, TO BE CONTINUED

Nice pictures, i have a friend from Angola
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Constantin: 3:11pm On May 25, 2006|
NOW I WILL SHOW YOU SOME PHOTOS OF ANGOLA´S OTHER CITIES, PROVINCES AND SMALLER TOWNS, I AM REALLY AMAZED HOW BEATIFUL IT WAS (it looks all like a mixture bwtween Portugal, Africa and Latin America to me), It must have been a very nice holiday feeling in the 70´s in Angola, everything looks so inviting and spotlessly clean, to my mind
this is in Benguela
This is Lobito, another town in Angola
This is "Nova Lisboa"(New Lisbon) but it has been renamed and now it is called Huambo
This is former " Sá da Bandeira" today its name is Lubango
Well, there are many other towns and provinces in Angola that look all like those I have presented to you but I do not ant to bore you stiff but these pictures are at least giving a small insight into how the country looked like before the war,
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Constantin: 3:26pm On May 25, 2006|
NOW I WANT TO SHOW YOU A FEW PICTURES ABOUT ANGOLA´S SCENERY This country is very varied and therefore has an enormous tourism potential , , some of the following pictures have been shot recently (2004/2005/2006)
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Constantin: 3:40pm On May 25, 2006|
Angola´s national football team . I keep my fingers crossed for them, Angola needs it after all these years of despair
I also want to show some of the projects Angola is undertaking,
, To be continued,

Great pictures, nice place before the war. But i think its begining to get better now. All the pictures are good except from the national team, they are there at out expense.

|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Unworthy: 10:26am On Jun 17, 2006|
Thank you for posting all these beautiful pictures.
I always look forward to opening your picture threads.
Please continue to post more pictures.
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Constantin: 4:35pm On Jun 17, 2006|
Gold Star and the rest
Thank you very much for your kind words , but sometimes I think that we Nigerians don´t show a lot of interest of what is happening elsewhere, just look how few people left a comment on my "Gallery Threads".
I do not know if it is worth continuing,
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by zexyworm: 5:29pm On Jun 17, 2006|
Many thanks for your initiative. Indeed I've keeping a closer look at this potential African dragon!
Nigeria ought to learn from Angola about harnessing tourism potentials and keeping cities clean, orderly, and well landscaped!
Luanda has many colonial buildings in the beaux-arts and other styles, which surely will be money spinners once they're restored, and I'm confident they will be one day.
I also dream of the day Lagos restores and established guidelines for the preservation of its countless colonial buildings around Lagos and Ikoyi islands,
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by mizkay(f): 8:11pm On Jun 18, 2006|
constantin. thank you bro. this is very informative. You see - our people dont realise how beautiful our Africa can be until they have 'seen' for themselves. It's all in the concept of 'see before you beleive'. Long live ANGOLA!
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Ndipe(m): 11:15pm On Dec 02, 2006|
Quite unbelievable that Luanda was a picturesque city.
|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by omoonile2: 1:01am On Dec 03, 2006|

|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by TerraCotta(m): 5:57pm On Jan 29, 2007|
I've got people in and around Luanda too--Eu Amo Angolans! Their music, their food, their dances ( ), their accented Portuguese--they have a beautiful culture. The southern highlands are supposed to be beautiful, going down the border with Namibia. A good (non-Angolan) friend lived in that area for a year or so and still goes back to visit every summer.
A lot of Nigerians don't know how close Angola is to taking our title as the main oil exporter on the continent. They're number 2, even though the oil exploration business is relatively new there. They've got corruption issues too, but they'll be raking in big money over the next few years if they keep up their pace of growth.

|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by Teaman(m): 1:06pm On Mar 22, 2008|
If Angola looked like this in the 60s and 70s, the question is, how does it look now? With Africa and its non-maintenance culture.

|Re: Angola Picture Gallery by blackspade(m): 12:54am On Mar 01, 2009|
The war destroyed a lot of the stuff constantin posted, but they've rebuilt a lot of it. In comparison to Nigeria, Angola is very much more developed.
