Angola can be found on the Atlantic Ocean in the southern part of Africa.  Angola was colonized by Portugal and was wracked by a brutal and long civil war.  Today, it is a wealthy petrol-state but it is a country of extreme haves and have-nots.  Angola is virtually untouched by tourism, and until just recently, it was one of the more difficult visas to get in Africa.

Once I learned of the more lenient visa protocols I added on a side trip to Angola when visiting four other countries in Africa.  It was a brief visit with a day spent visiting the city and another day visiting shipwreck beach.  This country has a lot of potential from a tourism perspective if they expand the tourist infrastructure and provide more competitive prices.
