Memories of Angola
Coffee and Timber
We know that Angola‘s natural wealth is not just oil and diamonds. For a year I lived on a farm in the north, where coffee production and logging reached impressive values. The civil war stopped many of these explorations, but the potential is there, and I dream to see the spectacle of coffee flowering again.
Scars of war
War ended a few years ago, but it still conditioning local life.
Mines are the most dangerous menace, restricting accesses. But the other signs are surely being erased. Quiximba, was a sort of concentration camp, and I believe that now, it has disappeared.
Blond negro children are another sign of war, that, instead of disappearing, will now, I hope, find a new reason to live a happy life.
But… will Quiximba still remain?
Yes, it seem to continue now under the name of Kinximba
