Looks So Tropical

These photos weren't taken just after dawn.  It was just after nine in the morning as we floated past wrecks in the harbor.  The haze hangs over Luanda for months.  It's humid, but at least not too hot.  Despite all the humidity from the cloud cover, it hasn't rained here since April.  Might be a couple more months until it does.  So this city only four degrees off the equator sits in a gray fog for more than half the year.  The other half of the year it might still be gray from rain clouds or the sun might be brilliant and blinding.  Every day it varies.  Except now, when it's been gray for months.
