With some input already received from dear Geli and her friend in Germany, which I will match, we are already well on the way to wood for benches.
As soon as I can get up there, I will be able to post new pictures of the building and the school. At the moment it is rainy season, so we will probably wait a bit but I am anxious to get there - its been too long!
In the meantime here are some more pictures from mozambique - sights seen along the main coastal road to San Sabastiao.
rain soaked streets and a fast food joint
buying piri-piri from a roadside vendor
yellow mtel (cellphone) colours appearing everywhere
cellphones are huge in mozambique and have made such a difference for rural dwellers
one stop shop
more roadside vendors
a truck full of bags of charcoal heading for markets in town
charcoal production is a village industry that consumes acres of indigenous forest
rainfall turns roadworks on the main coastal highway
into slippery mush
first view of the sea
we drove in rain for two days. the sunny skies of aqua blue made famous by Bob Dylan greeted us at the end of our journey
until next time then
