Firstly, Seattle was one of the very first cities on the "must see" list-as you mentioned, I'm after scenery (the Cascades, Puget Sound, Starbucks, Boeing
, Mt.Olympus and, of course, Frasier.
Secondly, what a small world we live in! I haven't been out of Luanda really, and have been advised not to bother?! Huambo (in Huambo province) is allegedly a UNITA stronghold at the moment. Apparently the Portuguese set up shop there in 1913, and named it Nova Lisboa
;amongst other things, it was set up as a major hub in the railway network they were setting up there, at the time (the Benguela railway).
I would love to "go explore", alas it's probably not a good idea at the moment. BTW, voce fala portugues?
I was born in Brazil, so "no worrys" as far as the local lingo is concerned.
Thanks for the info, (obrigado por sua informacao) (I hope that makes sense!!)
