    A babtism party

    Yesterday evening we were invited with Rejão, my student, to a party to celebrate the babtism of one of his relatives or friends (one is never too sure). It took place in the family home of Begildo who is also a student in ENAV. We arrived far too late to the party. We came around 20.00 but the party started at 14.00. But parties here in Maputo are all day events often! It was great to be allowed to go there and such an experience for us to get an opportunity to be with the local people. Begildo’s family made us feel very welcome and are definitely generous hosts. Even if we were so late we got nice food and drinks. There were several guys playing guitars and we sat in the garden and listened to nice Marabenta and enjoyed great company.
    It is not common to see white people (mulungus)  in the suburbs so there were many people that came to greet us and … take a look at us
