Day 30 Pedras Negras - Waku Kungo

In to morning we went to see Calandula Waterfalls. They are one of the biggest in Africa by volume. 105 metres high and 400 metres wide:

We drove to Malange city, nice, clean and freshly restored and painted houses:

From there we drove South to Mussende. Uhhhh.... Yesterday we thought we drove the worst road in Angola, but we haven't seen this! It wasn't road with potholes, but potholes with some road! :) For more than 100 km! That was also like a charcoal country - you could see burning charcoal on the sides of the road and selling bags of it everywhere.

Video of the road:

The we got to town Mussende and we hoped the road would be better... Mussende town video:

From there we took the road West to Quibala, at the beginning the road didn't look promising...

But after 35 km new tar road, we lucky because sun was getting down and we have to start looking for a place to sleep. Video of the road:

Beautiful sunset on the road:

And Cuca-time :)

We arrived to Waku Kungo town. After dark. We saw a church and asked for a padre if it was possible to camp at their place. uuuh what a mission!!! The priest had to call police sergeant, he asked for all the papers: passport copies, car papers, visa etc... It all took more than an hour to do all that. After we pitched our tent one of priests passed us and said in incomprehension: AND NO GASOSA FOR ME??? But we had a nice guy guarding us, very modest and humble and we shared some beer with him and gave a small tip in the morning... That was the first night of the trip we experienced really heavy and long rain. It thundered and rained the whole night! This was our camp at church ground:
