Angola (Bradt Travel Guide) - ISBN 1841623040 Angola (Bradt Travel Guide)
Sean Rorison (Author), Mike Stead (Author)
Angola is no destination for beginners. It has no Starbucks or McDonalds, and there's only one functioning escalator in the whole country. Only seven years have passed since it emerged from three decades of armed struggle; the land is littered with 10 million unexploded mines (which, interestingly, the elephants have learnt to detect and avoid) and there are few tourist facilities. But for the adventurous, this country offers over 1,000km of unspoilt beaches, excellent fishing and surfing, tropical forests and magnificent bird life. The first-ever English guidebook to the country, Bradt's Angola is essential reading for business travellers and pioneering adventurers alike. Mike Stead has lived in Angola since 2007. He works for the British FCO. Sean Rorison is a Canadian writer best known for his writing in the Chicago-based periodical Sobaka. He has also run an award-winning travel-writing website for the past seven years called Sean's Travel Stories.
Paperback: 240 pages; Publisher: Bradt Travel Guides; 1 edition (15 Oct 2009); ISBN-10: 1841623040; ISBN-13: 978-1841623047.

Cherie Hamilton
In the 16th century, Portuguese navigators circumvented the globe, conquering new lands to build one of history's largest empires, and at the same time carrying and introducing crops, food products and a variety of culinary cultures to all corners of the earth. This fascinating collection of 225 authentic recipes is the first cookbook to encompass the entire Portuguese-speaking world and explains how Portugal and its former colonies influenced each other's culinary traditions. Included are dishes containing Asian, South American, African, and European spices, along with varied ingredients like piripiri pepper, coconut milk, cilantro, manioc root, bananas, dried fish, seafood and meats.
