Yes, I am still on Ilha de Mozambique and enjoying it immensely.
The country is still flooded, there’s still no electricity other than random generators, prices on everything are going up because there’s no transportation abilities with some main bridges in the country washed away, cell phones are the only way to get internet and there’s only service once in a while, but I’m healthy and taking it all in.
I’ve gotten pretty good at washing clothes by hand with only a little water, drawing water from the well and boiling the heck out of it. Thank everything I’ve been an avid camper most of my life, it’s kind of like long term camping really.
I hear we might get power restored by next week but everyone tells me not to hold my breath for that….
In the meantime I’ve been taking in some of the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises I’ve ever seen. I’ve sat under completely dark skies and seen a sky full of stars. I’ve been swimming in the ocean, treasure hunting, and learning about the dark but fascinating history of this island.
Here are a few photos 🙂
I am also truly seeing the effects that come from generations being withheld an education for the purpose of keeping laborers servants.
It sets my mind to purpose.
I’m getting my feet here, meeting people, and learning quite a bit about living with only a little.
I’m safe, healthy, and happy, just wishing for the power to get restored sooner rather than later.
Live life to the fullest.
