We were prepared for the worst, especially after what happened in Sao Paulo. The school sent us very specific information on how to get through the Luanda Airport. They warned about swarms of moquitos, crowds of people, endless lines, countless procedures that we would be required to go through, no baggage carts and lost luggage. We were under the impression that the airport was a dump and that there would be beggars forcefully trying to help with our luggage for a small fee.
However, we were pleasantly surprised! The airport was newly remolded, very clean, well organized and I didn´t see a single mosquito. We got through customs very quickly, got a few carts and waited for our luggage. I must say, it did take about an hour for our luggage to come around on the carousel, but it was all there…all 12 pieces. We had to x-ray all of our luggage on the way out and were questioned about one of them, but without any problems we went outside and were greeted by the school´s diretor. It was painless in comparison to SP.
