Mozambique = Mozambeach

Monday, May 21st, 2012

It was a good move to stay some extra days in Mozambique after building houses/homes for over a week; a great opportunity to see a little (just a little) bit more of this country.
Me and one of the team members, John, went to a beach resort in Ponta d’Ouro for a good 1.5 day (! πŸ˜‰ ) of sun, beach and relaxation…well, it has been a bit too cloudy and way too windy to sit on the beach and do nothing, but we still had a great day. Ponta d’Ouro is a 3 hour bumpy drive from Catembe (just 15 minutes by ferry from Maputo) and that 3 hour drive turned out to be *more* than bumpy and driving slower than walking speed on many occasions, an interesting experience. πŸ˜‰
Anyway, it was all worth it; Ponta d’Ouro is a beautiful place, even off-season (I can only imagine how wonderful it must be ‘in season’, besides being overly crowded unfortunately)…I got to swim in the Indian Ocean (my first time!) and body surf, the water temperature of 24.5C made it perfect!
Tomorrow will be my last day in Mozambique as I am flying out late in the evening…once again, time flies when you are having fun (or doing volunteering work πŸ˜‰ )!! I am looking forward to see Misha though…a lot!
