Lourenco Marques, Mocambique

my first holiday

away from home,

in the forties, was it ?

i have a few photos , to be unearthed from the dusty boxes,
but the mind is an incredible storage of pictures and happenings.

What do i remember
. . . . . It was a long drive from Pretoria to the coastal city
. . . . . We had to go through two border posts - Komatipoort and Ressano Garcia
and i will in the years after go though the process time and again
. . . . . We stayed at the Pensao Polana, in a residential area, near the Polana Hotel
. . . . . Prawns, Crabs, Galinha Piri Piri, Teas and Pastries at the Scala Cafe
. . . . . The Market with fresh Produce and fresh seafoods, curios too, hubbling with new images
. . . . . Visiting parents friends, and farms, my father is of farming roots in Majiao, Pearl River Delta[/float]

Six decades later, it is now Maputo, capital of Mocambique, no longer the Colony aka Portuguese East Africa,
