Life here seems complicated, and indeed it is for the majority. For the Mozambican is not easy to find a piece of bread for lunch. Study opportunities are almost non-existent for people living far from cities, sanitation and hygiene are very backward and most roads are destroyed.

But the goodness and the will of the people is great. Breathes the air of trying to change the country and consolidate minimal progress in key areas such as education, nutrition, health and others.

In this country the first thing that impresses the newcomer is the friendliness of the people. It's a slight exaggeration, I have traveled to other regions of Africa, and never was like here.

The photo shows one of the shops owned by Indians, in the main street of Xai Xai.

greetings Flees ! eric.

Eric, thanks your detailed introduction. Looked at your speech, my mood is somewhat complex. I admire you very much, really, has traded is I, not can achieve you like this. You said there people's very goodness, this is very good, I knew, lives in a goodness environment, the mind is peaceful, is clean.

I thought, although you in a material deficient place, but you spiritually are very rich. I like a speech very much: “The experience is the wealth.” From this significance, I envies you very much. At the same time, I feel proud for you. You are handling a great matter.

Prays for heavenly blessing you, flees

There is such a beautiful unity here between real life and the myths, I would not be surprised to see some figure appear in the upper floor and disappear in the lower.

Nice observation my friend Christiane. Sometimes I find it hard to distinguish between tradition and modernity. In Mozambique, these two concepts are together in a sort of harmonic symbiosis. Salut.
