  19. Mozambique Reading The Economist

    There were a number of children in my backyard, and i frequently gave them magazines or pictures to go through and look at.  This particular child was thoroughly enraptured by this edition of The Economist, and made for a great photo. 

  20. Mozambique Just a daily visit from my neighbors

    A big part of my Peace Corps experience is the downtime I have at home after I get done with all of my daily work activities. These 2 kids have become some of my closest friends in my neighborhood. They are outside my door in the morning, at lunchtime, and when I get back from doing activities in the community in the afternoon. They have taught me so many games, told me too many ghost stories, and never miss a chance to accompany me to the market (where they insist on holding my hands and hel...

  21. Mozambique A Weekend of Soccer and Games

    I went to watch my town play our rival (the next closest town to us, 2 1/2 hours away) in a friendly soccer match last summer. I turned out to be more exciting to watch than the players to this group of kids. They danced and sang for me, ignoring the many pleas of the soccer fans to pay attention to the game (which we won!).

  36. Mozambique Chapa Dreams

    Haven't we all fallen asleep on public transport?  No matter how bumpy, tightly packed, stinky, sweaty, or nervous we may be of our laptop shoved in our backpack for the ride to the city...there is nothing quite like the lull of deafening Pandza (Mozambican Pop) and the clatter of chickens to send one off into dream land.

  37. Mozambique Newly elected Pres. Obama!

    Travelling home via Zanzibar Island, after my service, I got a glimpse into another countries reaction to President Obama being elected.  In Mozambique they were fast printing fabric with his face on hit that the woman wrap around themselves like skirts. 

  38. Mozambique Sisterly Love

    I was viviting my husband's family and enjoying a nice Fanta, probably Fanta Laranja-Orange, on a hot summer day.  His cousins were playing in the yard for awhile when Celia decided she wanted to play "mommy" to Lisa who promptly fell asleep.

  39. Mozambique After hours and still working!

    Some evenings, especially during my first year of the Peace Corps, I would help serve in the school cafeteria where I was a teacher.  The students always got a kick out of me helping prepare the food, serve it, and especially clean up at the end of the meal.  I learned that when you have mess hall duty, you have to shovel your own plate down as fast as you can to get right back to work behind the serving counter.  I always had a great time speaking English with students who were not mine and ...

  40. Mozambique Nao e tudo bom...

    This photo is of a boy sleeping in front of a cellphone ad for Vodacom, one of two cell phone companies in Mozambique.  The irony is their motto: Tudo bom means "everything's great".  This photo clearly showed everything was not great.  The photo was taken a day after a popular music festival celebrating the timbila, the original xylophone.

  1. Mozambique The Fortunes Of War

    I was taken by  local colleague recently to meet his uncle and eat oranges and peanuts with him. I didn't realize that by the end of the meeting, I would henceforth be obligated to refer to him as my godfather.   The trip to his house was some ten kilometers by bike, the last of which was vividly reminiscent of "...over the river and through the woods." Upon arriving, although given the following context I hesitate to use the cliché, my jaw hit the ground. I was confronted by...
