    Life In MaputoWhat's it like reading the local newspaper?

    Is it all in Portuguese or is there a section written in English.

    Life In Maputo

    WHILE (BEING CHASED) The site-stats tell me we only post to the M2A blog (on average) about every four days (excluding road-trips). My writing skills inform me I’m losing the comedic-campaign, and turning-tail towards only the most serious of issues till after November... (But they’re all a bunch of hacks! What do they know?) The real truth of the matter is that time is not an object in Mozambique. (Most would argue, time is NOT an object, period. And, I for one, won’t argue with that). And so to tackle these tough issues; posts just come as they hit us. Also, the fact is; funny things don’t happen often. Some might say funny things don’t happen at all: It’s people that make things funny! But the absolute truth is nothing makes people funnier than Hash. (Don’t get any silly ideas; I’m talking about the Hash House Harriers). Oh, are you unfamiliar in the ways? You’re not alone.

    The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated as HHH - no idea what it means or where the name originated) is a (British?) tradition. It involves getting a bunch of ex-people together (yes, all foreign ex-patriots, including Americans (not even George Bush can cause that kind of resentment?)), and driving way out into the “bush” (of any country on any continent) and unleashing this giant herd silver-spooned t-shirt clad galloping gringos upon the locals and letting them all (in Maputo there are about 70 people or so!) run around in the sand like madmen for about an hour. NO. I’m not making this up. And if you’re confused, stay tuned cause it only gets worse.

    Oh yeah, and have a happy St. Patrick's Day!

    Life In MaputoOK I know what you are thinking after reading of my visit to Maputo - or at least what my wife Christina is thinking: that it sounds a little suspicious that my so-called "Malawian stomach virus" just happened to come the morning after the 5-liter beers, some place called "Mambos" and of course the traditional African village ceremony called "tequila shots". Which by the way was Dan's idea as I recall. I will admit, though, that the thought did cross my mind when I first awoke feeling pukey on Sunday morning. As a matter of fact I remember thinking to myself that this seemed to be the most horrible hangover I had ever had in my life; I even was at the point where I think I actually would have made one of those promises to “never ever drink again” and actually follow through with it. But I quickly realized that the 5 hours of projectile vomiting, dry-heaving, sweating and generally wanting to die were clearly something more than a reeeaaaalllly bad hangover. But yes I will concede that the “beer bongs” (the 5-liter tubes looked like big water bongs filled with beer and with a tap on the bottom) and tequila probably did not help the situation. Luckily, the whole time I was comforted by the fact that Dan & Jamy were -- in case I needed them -- not far away at the pool lounge having fruity drinks and worrying about me.

    Life In Maputo

    Our new apartment is one-part battleship, one-part living quarters and one-part whistling teakettle.

    All aboard?

    Life In Maputo

    We do more before 6am than all of our blog readers combined!

    Sure it’s only because of the 7-hour time difference… but we don’t have to advertise that… we just do. Because we here at MovingToAFRICA.com (M2A) (yeah there’s only 2 of us, you gotta a problem with that?) pride ourselves on being brutally honest, slightly humorous and disgracefully tactless. Luckily our egos got lost in Jo-Burg… I mean here in Mozambique, we speak like children and act like infants. “Can we have a bed now?”

    The producers of such poorly read entries as Let the blogging Begin, Our Taste Buds Take a Trip and How to Buy a Cell Phone in Maputo are now poised to lunch a new blockbuster blog-entry, entitled… Moving Up In Maputo.

    C’mon Weezy, we’re moving on up… but the elevator ain’t workin.

    Life In Maputo

    Ok ok, so Maputo isn’t all fun & fungus, ya know! We’ve been trying to spare you all the mundane problems of trying to get work (trabahlo) done here… but a few, just a few of you seem to have taken note (and perhaps offense) that all we write about is las festas e bebedao. And… well you’re right. But we are here for a reason and though Jamy doesn’t like to talk (or write) about it much, you just have to take our word that we are getting lots accomplished.

    If it is mundane details about minor accomplishments you want… then details yee shall have... Read on MacDuff…
