Maputo… finally

From Johannesburg to Maputo overland… On the way, I had some interesting conversations about Aids, crime, the difference between hunting and shooting and how Aids effects crime rates in South Africa. I will make some postings about that the coming days. And in between I enjoyed one of the joys of travelling: meeting the unexpected in all kinds. Like this beautifull view yesterday arriving in the African city with that mediteranian atmosphere.
