    Thanks for this post. It’s difficult to find anything but doom and gloom on Angola … We will be moving to Cabinda soon (my partner is a pediatric doctor with the Baylor Global Health Corps) …

    I’ve done a fair bit of traveling, so I’m looking forward to the adventure. Keep the updates coming!

    Best,
    Justin
