Lubango, Angola

Lubango, Angola

Lubango lies at an elevation of 1,760 metres in a valley of the Huíla Plateau and was surrounded by a scenic park spreading up the mountain slopes. It’s a beautiful town developed by the Protueses iin the past and untouched by the civil war. I stay in this town for only one day and see everything, so I guess I can call this a SMALL town:P

If you have follow my blog, you will know the sky is always hazy in West Africa because of the wind from sahara. I seldom see blue sky over there. That’s why when I arrived Lubango, I really felt in love with it.

Except for the portuguese buildings, there’r also a lot of ultra modern building (eg the whole building is made with Glass) in town. it’s just so different from the previous african towns I have been.

There is also one famous tourist attraction-Jesus statue (Cristo Rei) on top of the moutain overlooking the city of Lubango.

This is much less impressive that the one in  brazil, and I am not quit sure about this history of this one! If you know anything about this, please let me know:)
