May 9, 2008 - Mutare

Wanting to catch the earlies buses and the shortcut gate won't open til 6, we head out in the dark, watching the sunrise as we hike the long route to minibus almost 5 km away.

Vilanculos - Mozambique Are we in Africa? Vilanculos is such a beautiful tropical destination. Such a contrast to the dry inner southern Africa we have seen so far. Most of us have been craving fish and seafood along the way, anything other than red meat and chicken.

We shopped for sarongs, spices, coconuts and baskets (it seems that Peter (aka Laium...
