ANGOLA ~ 5 Years of Peace ~

...New  African country... one more off my "missing list"...this lovely postcard was issued to celebrate 5 years of peace (2007)  following a 27-year civil war...the signing of an accord on April 4 2002, between the government and Unita rebels drew the line under a conflict that left half a million people dead and wrecked the infrastructure of a country that only won independence in 1975...Thanks Tian!!

Angola is a country in Southern Africa. It is the seventh-largest country in Africa, and is bordered by Namibia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia and the Atlantic Ocean. The capital and largest city  is Luanda.
