Luanda: Africa's insanely expensive beach party

罗安达:非洲梦幻奢华沙滩派对

 

Cross the street to the other side, and sandy beaches are lined with restaurants and nightclubs.

穿过街口,走到对面,遍眼望去,是一大片餐厅和夜店鳞次栉比的沙滩。

Sunbathers lounge during the day, replaced in the evening by fine diners who think nothing of plopping down a couple hundred dollars for sushi or lobster.

白天,沙滩上摆满了为晒日光浴的人们准备的躺椅;夜晚,这里则坐满了食客,来这里花几百块吃寿司和龙虾对他们已是常事。

After a pre-disco nap, the beautiful people emerge and the music cranks up from midnight until the sun comes up again.

打个小盹儿,那些衣着鲜艳的人们陆陆续续浮现了,音乐也开始狂欢,从午夜唱到天明。

It's not Miami or Rio, but the Ilha de Luanda, a tropical beach playground in the African country of Angola for the wealthy and increasing number of expatriates who work there.

Sound like a party worth checking out? There's a catch.

这里可不是佛罗里达的迈阿密,也不是巴西的里约,这里是安哥拉首都罗安达,一个坐落在非洲的热带沙滩游乐场,专为富豪和外派官员而打造。这听起来是不是很像一个值得停留的派对?哈哈,我们赶上了!

Visas to Angola are notoriously difficult to get and those that do get the stamp must ready themselves to swallow some whopping prices.

众所周知,安哥拉的签证都很难拿到,而且盖章也要承担昂贵的费用。

Luanda is among the top 10 most expensive cities in the world for expats – behind

罗安达被列为世界上适合海外定居的最贵十大城市之一,仅次于加拉加斯(委内瑞拉首都)

Caracas and Oslo, and well above other famously expensive cities: Geneva is 5th, Tokyo

和奥斯陆(挪威首都),远高过其他著名消费昂贵的城市,如日内瓦排名第五,东京排名第

11th, Hong Kong 29th, New York 39th.

11,香港排名第29,纽约排名第39.

Unlike those cities, Luanda's wealthy waterfront is surrounded by grinding poverty, visible to anyone landing at the airport.

与以上提及的国家不同,刚下机场就可以看到罗安达奢侈的海滩水域旁边环绕着贫民区。

That's an image that the city is trying to change, transforming its Marginal bay-front walkway and the thin peninsula that stretches in front of the city.

如今这个城市一直在尝试改变,尝试着改造它的海湾边缘走道和城市前方狭长的半岛
