We want to show you, through pictures and videos, what our town looks like.
Yesterday afternoon we went on a little tour with our neighbor-friend to our go-to spots in Manhiça. The places we go to buy, hang out and walk around. Here are some pictures so you can have a better idea of what our Mozambican town looks like:
Our home and yard, where we spend most of the time, mostly outside!
Papú, the cafeteria/bakery/restaurant/ATM/store. Where we walk to buy a snack, to grab a coffee or even to eat something!
The market that is closest to our place. I go there 2-3 times a week to buy mainly fresh vegetables and bread.
Tamagosh place, one of the main restaurants in town.
The beginning of the huge street market!
Shoprite, the “fancy” South African supermarket, where you can find refrigerated items and most “everything” else you need.
The public library.
The views of the komati river, always a nice place to walk around, especially in the late afternoon. The light is so beautiful and the views are incredible!
These guys work with their boats to transport people from one side of the river to the other.
The primary school where our neighbors study. Now they are on summer vacation, but starting again next week.
The soccer/basketball field.
CISM: Centro de Investigação em Saúde de Manhiça, where Joe works.
