Just about to leave Mozambique. I was here for holiday, longer than I expected as I couldn’t get a visa to South Africa. I had fun in Tofo buuuuuutttt no waves and it was pretty ‘cold’ (relatively speaking). It was ok, read a lot.
Tofo pics…the Inhumbane airport was pretty slick. The flights are also a little like bus tours…stopping off a few times on the way to let people off and pick up some new passengers.
Then I returned to the capital – Maputo a little early cause I got sick and the non-surf was tormenting me. So… crazy as it sounds, when I travel I love checking out local supermarkets. They always tell you something about what’s going on. I took the following photos of a local supermarket that is all Chinese, next to my hotel… reflecting the heavy Chinese investment happening in East South/East Africa.
It feels like the kind of advance supermarket you would establish if you were taking over a country and you wanted to make sure you had everything ready for when you shipped in the invading capitalists…everything you need from aisles and aisles of noodles and soy sauce, to industrial cookers, spare no parking signs, football trophies, life jackets, a million different kinds of power adapters, industrial cookers, and, of course, tea to improve your sex life and cure hemorrhoids. No joke.
Anyho…back to reality.
