We drove out of Maputo for the first time today looking for the home of a famous artist which has a restaurant and is open to the public. Unfortunately we didn’t know the address and after driving around randomly for a while we stopped at a pool bar for lunch and to ask directions. When we did ask it was apparently ‘too difficult’ to explain! We have since found the location on the internet so maybe we’ll go back.

It was interesting to see some of the country outside the capital, some very poor areas of shanty housing. This is after all one of the poorest countries in the world, it is hard to remember this when you see so many well to do people in Maputo.

I’m feeling much better today as you may have guessed, looks like a 24 hour malaise hopefully.
