    Life In Maputo

    And you all thought we were lying when we said we love it here.... Check out Sunday's feature on Mozambique in the New York Times.

     

    Ok, not that I'm bitter or paranoid or anything, but on January 5th I pitched a suspiciously similar article to the NYT and got no reply. Coincidence? (Nope)

    Life In Maputo

    "In a town full of rubber plants"

    One day last week I was coming home from work at about 6:30pm on a weekday (Yes! I actually work late on occasion these days). I hopped out of my friend's car and made my usual way across the street and passed the Greek pizzeria 'El Greco', located at the base of our building. I looked in the window and saw very little activity. Not uncommon, most respectable people would not be caught dead going go out to eat in Maputo till at least 8:30. But it made me think how it's strange that Jamy & I never eat here. It's the closest restaurant to our apartment... It's practically in our apartment. Some people (like Jumpin Johnny D) say they have (or had) the best pizza in town! But we've not liked it the 2 times we've been there... (Cheese bread without any tomatoes or sauce is not Jamy's favorite, nor is my fave a steak that's as tough as a boot and looks like one too). And so we pass by it every day. It's not even an option in our mind anymore. Just a landmark to tell people where we live.

    Life In MaputoSo, last night I was sitting on the couch typing on the laptop when I felt an itch on the back of my knee. I reached down and felt something there, something hard and kind of crusty. I looked at it. Piece of dirt? I tried to brush it away but it wouldn’t budge. Why? Because it was no piece of dirt...

    Life In Maputo

    Mozambique is moving up in the world... and it has nothing to do with the tsunami or the shifting of tectonic plates or anything like that. (Moving To Africa, on the other hand, is not moving anywhere, more on M2A later tho). While Maputo still has about a million people living in mud-shacks and wooden tenement housing with corrugated tin roofs, at the same time, mais e mais million dollar mansions are being built along the beach every day: The depiction of the have's and have-not's has never been so clearly drawn for me in my whole life. It's not a pretty picture.

    Life In Maputo

    "Maputo - Mozambican wildlife authorities were on Wednesday trying to figure out how a buffalo ended up roaming the streets of the capital Maputo and attacked five people before being killed by police.

    Three people were seriously injured and two more suffered slight injuries in a Maputo neighbourhood a few weeks ago when a buffalo roaming the Infulene suburb attacked them.

    The errant buffalo was the latest wild animal on the loose in an area alien to wildlife in recent months."

    Life In MaputoSo I was just sitting here in our apartment, writing some emails, adding some calendar events to the blog, when I see this storm rolling in. I have a makeshift desk made out of a closet door setup in one of our many empty rooms. And sitting there I have a picturesque view of the Maputo Bay. And rising over Ketembe is one dark looking cloud. But it’s Winter! It shouldn’t be raining here in Mozambique.

    Life In MaputoWell, Dan’s request, insistence, harassment, really, that I post to the blog has finally gotten to me! I can no longer stave off his nagging… he is like the ambitious mosquito in an otherwise harmless swarm, determined to dole out the malaria. I’ve finally succumbed, fever blisters and all.

    Life In Maputo

    HAS ANYBODY SEEN THE BLOG?

    Where's that confounded blog?! Is it worth seeing? Oh, here it is. Right where I left it at WWW.MOVINGTOAFRICA.COM. So, let's just cut straight to the matter for once, shall we? Cut out the witty banter, shan't we? I'm sure you are all wondering where we have been, what we have been doing and, why (Yes! I have been getting all your hate mail demanding info!) oh why, haven't we been posting to the blog since... let me check. yikes! May 1st. Well, truth is, (that's what the delete key is for) after I made that last post as Jamy... she freaked out. Not in words, but in action: tried to stab me! Yup, you can picture it now... Then after calming down? She went into a million-mile-per-hour tirade about the evils of blogging and the lack of morals and the unscrupulous principles and forbade me (yup, you heard that right too) forbade me to post another digital detail until... until... I agreed to stop posting in her name, stop posting anything about her and stop posting anything that she has also participated in.

    -- I'm only kidding. But, the idea to turn our blog into a pay-per-view sex site has definately been thwarted, once and for all. But really, we've just been busy. And sick. Then busy. Then sick. Then tired. Then tired of being sick. But all the while still remaining busy. All that and the mac had an attack and had to be sent back.

    Life In Maputo

    Well “raising the bar” technology hasn’t picked up anything interesting lately. (You best keep-up the chatter about putting a Mozambican in the White House people). So I suppose we at MOVING TO AFRICA should make another broadcast… if we can keep the bugs out of the system long enough to transmit.

    This just in: Moth’s Love Maputo!
