Angola event in London on Tuesday 9 February

Angola by Mike Stead on Tuesday 9 February at 1900

Mike Stead is the author of the “Bradt Guide to Angola”.  He will be discussing living and travelling in a country which has only recently come out of a protracted civil war.

From the introduction:

“So what can the visitor expect when they go to Angola? The hackneyed phrase ‘war-torn Angola’ should be deleted and consigned to the recycle bin. (…) Angola is moving forward, reconstruction is taking place everywhere and there is a huge feeling of self-confidence, pride and optimism (…) Angola is keen to regain lost time and things are changing incredibly fast – travellers shouldn’t waste another minute if they are keen to see its raw beauty.”

He was recently interviewed by Sandi Toksvig on BBC  Radio 4’s Excess Baggage programme.

Tickets are £3 (includes wine). Contact the venue to reserve a place – The Travel Bookshop, 13-15 Blenheim Crescent, London W11 2EE, 0207 229 5260
