Boa Noite !!!!

Hi my dear friends!!!!!!
I'm back !!!!!
We arrived in Maputo almost one week ago ( it was Monday the 4th of August ) and since then we had a lot to do!!!
Both my kids started school and my husband is going to work, too !!!!
I'm trying to make the house a home, while waiting for all our stuff from Indonesia…..

Yesterday we had our first tour in Maputo!!!!
I didn't bring my camera with me, just my smartphone and I and Tobia took some pics while in the car and when down!!!!

Our first impressions from Mozambique…. ( more to come, as this morning we had a lovely walk along the beach!) ….























Casa de Ferro







Mercado Municipal








Casa de Elefante


Well, that's it for now… and it's only the beginning!!!!!
So happy to be back with you all!!!!!!!!

xxxx Alessandra

      The house you saw in the pics is not ours : in fact the "Casa de Ferro" is a famous landmark of Maputo!

  14. Thank you for sharing your photos of Maputo. I will in turn share them with my husband, his sister and brother in law, who were born there. They have such good memories of the 'old colonial days'.
