Dinner At Cafe Do Mar

Andreas and I went out to Cafe do Mar on the beach a couple of times before leaving Angola.  The sound of the surf was relaxing and the decor fit well - modern and squared off.  The service was better than most of Angola, but still could have used help.  Food was both delicious and pretty.

Resort Views

The restaurant and resort are on a lake.  The view is good, and there are antelope around.  It was still a bit dry and dusty.

Who's Watching?

This big satellite dish (huge) was out in the middle of the Angolan plain.  It's not for regular communications.  I wonder what entity put it there.

Angolan Resort Food

Yes, it took this long to pull these photos off of my phone.
This is from one of the last activities we did in Angola - we went with CLO to a resort an hour out of town.  The place was nice, and the food was good, but, like almost everything else in Angola, it had issues.  The resort is on a lake and a bit in the interior.
The menu was fixed for everyone.  We started with little amuse bouches and then went to a frou frou appetizer.  I did try the fish course, and at the onion frizee, but I still don't get the appeal of fish.  I also had a couple of caprainhas.  The beef course was very good, as was the mousse dessert.
The problems with the place were the usual - poor plumbing and poor service.  But we're gone now and we had a nice lunch out.  I will post the photos of the actual resort tomorrow.

Lots of trash on the beach.  It's this way all over Angola.  Trash piles up and up and no one takes care of it.  There's not a single complete block in Luanda that doesn't have trash like this on it.  Depressing.

Little Things On The Beach

Little crabs, some perfect shells, footprints, and structures and debris on the beach.

Down The Coast

More vessels up and down the coast for miles.  Talk about depressing.

Washing Through The Wreck

I tried to capture the look of some of the water washing through a grounded wreck.  It'd flow in and out and take tiny bits of rust with it.
