A beautiful surprise on my last morning in Mozambique…

Sometimes, you see the most beautiful things by chance, when you don´t expect it at all….on my last day in Mozambique, just before taking a flight back to Johannesburg (which saved me a two-day bus ride in those horrible minibus taxis), I had to run back into town to get some cash…

( I know this doesn´t sound too exciting, but given that I spent most of my time hanging out on the beach and at the pool, the prospect of walking into town seemed like an impossible task in the heat, which is also why I had put it off until the very last moment….;-))

Anyways, eventually, I walked into town on that scorching hot morning to find a working ATM (not an easy task)…finally, after three unsuccessful attempts, I found a cash machine that worked, so I turned down to the coastal road and was completely taken by surprise of what I saw….so beautiful!

(and funnily, I wouldn´t have walked down there if the first ATM had actually been working…:-))

This was the only time on my four-day stay in Vilanculos that I witnessed low tide…the sea withdrew to the horizon, forming little channels of crystal blue or darker shades of blue, interspersed by white sand banks….children were playing on the sand banks, while their families were enjoying cooled drinks in the shadow of the palm trees….
