Feliz Natal, LBW Angola

We are well into the Christmas season and I took note of challenges Angolano’s were facing in this last week: men riding double on scooters on flash-flooded roads, wearing supermarket plastic bags duct-taped onto their feet/legs; women sheltering from the searing heat (34 degrees) under the large Nativity characters on Agostinho Neto Square, and the increased prevalence of street begging.  I also reflected on my own challenges I faced this week: how to get the water laden chairs that had blown into the pool out before I could swim and hoping also that the taxi driver leaping around on the road in front of me would manage to keep his very low-slung jeans up(!) – it reminded me of the opportunity to cherish those we love, and be thankful for the opportunities we have. Whatever your focus for the Christmas season, may it be peaceful and rich. Merry Christmas from the LBW website admin.
