Video: The People (and Places) of Angola

To say that Angola has had a troubled and violent past would be an understatement. But now, decades after the end of its brutal civil war, the country is stable, peaceful, and welcoming to visitors.

In this clip, we get a chance to explore some of the landscapes that make the African country such a special place, but more importantly we catch a glimpse of the people who live there. More than anything else, the people who call a country home are what make it unique and special. That message shines through here, in the faces and the eyes of Angolans who find optimism in their future.
