One question too that I am asked a lot from my previous experience in Angola is, "What do you eat in Angola?" This is an important question, since the palatability of the food in a different culture really affects the longevity and enjoyment of serving in that culture. I believe that a country's food also tells a lot about their culture and their history and eating it helps you to identify with the people better. One elderly wise African would repeatedly tell me to: "Continually eat more of our food and you will speak our language better!"
Now since the war has ceased there in Angola, foreign food imports have begun trickling in, allowing one to purchase now some normal 'western-type' food such as Kelloggs Corn Flakes. So a expatriate living in an urban center could purchase foodstuffs now that very much like what is available in North America.
But the Angolan food that is distinct and interesting is what I want to cover here.
