Global Glimpses: Luanda, Angola


In February 2010 I visited Angola, my husband’s homeland. On my first morning in Luanda, we headed out to Tunga N’go market, in the run-down but real-life neighborhood of Rangel. The market offered a glimpse into another world.

The woman pictured above is grinding manioc into flour, which is then used to make funge, Angola’s staple that accompanies almost every traditional meal.
