Host Family and Training 

Boane is a smaller town about an hour outside of Maputo, on the road to Swaziland. This is where I completed my training and lived with a Shangaan family.

               This was my room in my host family's house.   





Namaacha is a town at the Swazi border. Every year they have a pilgrimage from Boane to Namaacha in honor of Our Lady of Fátima. It's a big party and I won a kuduru contest the year I went.
