You buy everything on the street in Mozambique

All the car spare parts shops are painted egg yolk yellow. The plastic bags contain cashew nuts. The white liquor is palm wine, the orange bottles contain peri-peri. There is charcoal in the blue and white sacks.

I missed the best shots: A lady carrying an axe on her head, sideways, with the blade over her shoulder (coronal section). Another with an adze balanced front-to-back on her head, with the metal hoe just in front of her face. A GS4 security guard at NED Bank in Maxixe who carried a massive pump action shotgun. A lady frying bacon in a park, with students queueing up to buy sandwiches for their lunch.

Finally, some street art in Inhambane.
