Diamond Life in CUANGO, Angola

Whenever my husband and I get a chance to go anywhere of our interest, we always do. So every time we go on leave (break from work here in Angola), and come back we always have something to say about the places where we spent a week or so. Normally 1 month before we go out of the country we start planning for our next vacation. All our stories of adventure will follow, maybe next week or this coming few days.

Staying here in the middle of nowhere is not really that bad, it's only a matter of determining what you want in life. Money is here I tell you, you know why?... because we don't spend any penny at all, we save a lot. Imagine 4 months
(some are on 9 & 12 months contract) of staying here without shopping, we don't buy foods, pay electricity, telephone, gas, etc... Our monthly salary goes to our bank straight away. One more thing, we are not allowed to bring cash on site (this has something to do with buying diamonds from illegal diggers - we call them Garimpero).

Well, let me share you some of our photos here. Our life in the middle of nowhere:



This is our Bahay Kubo, where we always have Karaoke

Beautiful Sunday afternoons in Cuango, I cooked thai curry (my hubby's favorite).






This is our camp, showing our accommodations and our tiny swimming pool.




and yet, we get gorgeous sunset! Showing at the bottom are some photos around.





This is why I call "our diamond life" in the middle of nowhere.
