    The TripSaturday was our wildest time so far. In the early afternoon, we took a ferry to Katembe (sp?), a small peninsula just a mile or two across the bay. After traversing “the ship graveyard” we planted ourselves on the beach at the only restaurant – a comfortable place (called Jandango?) with a deck that faces the water and a live band in the back.

    The Trip

    Thursday night the rains came. Jamy and I were downstairs in Chris’ family room… umm… watching The Grifters. Hehehe. When we heard the winds pickup.

    I made my way upstairs to the terrace and saw the lightning storm repeatedly strike the water off the coast. It was really cool. I thought of going to get the video camera to film it… but then I remembered that episode of AMF where the idiot doing the same thing was actually struck… and decided to just appreciate it with my organic (slightly less electric-conductive) eyes and just write about it later...

    The Trip

    In America, the land of opportunity and choice, we are taught from a very early age NOT to jump at the very first thing that comes along. We are shown that there is almost always an infinite number of things to chose from and to make an uninformed decision will certainly end in malcontent, either sooner or later in life.

    I don’t think the same holds true for life in Mozambique or Africa or maybe even in most places.

    The Trip

    Friday… seems like such a long time ago…

    Let me try to piece it together… we slept. Allot. Then we got up. Then I think we slept again. First thoughts were, “Jennifer is not human!” She does not eat or sleep. And I haven’t even seen her plug-in for a recharge… maybe she’s in cahoots with that cyborg guy… I’ll fill you in as I get more info…

    Anyway… let’s begin with Friday night. Liz (who is rooming with Fran) is dating this really cool guy who plays guitar in a band. I don't really know them yet... But Liz is another Fulbrighter here and her boybriend is Mozambican, but whose name I can’t recall at the moment. (Just like most of Friday). Anywho, they invited us to go out with them…

    The Trip

    The second day (Thursday), we woke up on the late side and all walked down the street to get some lunch at Mundo’s Pizzeria. And this is gonna shock you, but “It was damn hot outside!”

    The Trip

    Ok, so the first night (Wednesday the 7th) we did NOT go out and hear any jazz music at “Bar Africa.” We were going to go, but we were afraid that once we traveled there by taxi and got all settled in for a night of fun our jet-lag would kick in and we’d have to go though the trouble of getting ourselves back home (through “the language barrier“). So we stayed in and hung out with Fran (another Fulbrighter & her boyfriend Burt who is visiting her here in Moze).

    The TripThe trip was a breeze! Not counting the 20+ hours cramped on the plane of course...

    From West Palm to Atalanta to "Jo-Burg" to Maputo with no hitches, no glitches and no delays. (Airport security here is fun! I put my carry-on thru the "machine?" and was stopped: is this your's? Yes. What's in it? A computer. Ok!") Once we got to the Maputo airport, which is more like a small train station in Italy, we were met at customs (which only took us about 10 minutes) by someone from the state dept. AND got (all!) our luggage in record time!
