Culture, Photographs, Memories and Links
From October 2003 to December 2005 I was a volunteer in Monapo, Mozambique. I wanted to create a page specifically about Mozambique and my experience there to make it easier to share pictures with family and friends, but also for anyone interested in this beautiful country, because it is beautiful. Africa seems blurry in the imaginations of many people. To me, it is a place of endless possibility; everyday was filled with the potential for something louca or emocional or belississima.
Mozambique is Portuguese-speaking country in Southern Africa. It has ten provinces, each with its own culture, languages and terrain. I lived in Nampula province, but got to know the capital city of Maputo fairly well too. The only provinces I never visited were Tete, Niassa and Zambezia.
What would the world look like if it were a village of 100?
Most of the pictures on this site are mine, however, I have scanned pictures from Mozambican magazines, taken maps and historical pictures off Google images. I have also provided links to other sites with more information. I am NOT taking credit for theses pictures or sites.
