Kizomba Dance Break

This video belongs with the Huambo road trip entries - I think it sums up the type of road trip we had pretty well (quality internet connectivity made uploading possible only now).

Kizomba is something of a national pastime in Angola and involves a kind of close dancing that I haven't managed to learn yet. Featured dancers are Nancy (the American expat who runs the language school in Benguela) and Chinho (whose family we were traveling to visit in Huambo).

Yes, this is the main highway between two of the largest cities in the country. And yes, that really is a woman carrying a log on her head.

Feel free to dance along if the mood strikes...
