The differences between Windhoek and either Luanda or Menongue are astounding. You could pick Windhoek up from Namibia and put it down anywhere in Europe or America and you couldn't tell that it wasn't always there. I guess that's what 20 years of war and strife will do to a country.
Windhoek has a very European feel. Well more British, since they drive on the wrong side of the road. But nobody is perfect.
