The journey through Mozambique in 2019 raised many questions about abandoned buildings scattered like salt & pepper everywhere en route (an 8& half hour drive), Why would solidly built homes, shops, hotels & farmhouses stand empty for 40 years? Are they cursed? Do the original Portuguese who fled the country after the coup still own them? And if they do, why would this deal remain in tact after a coup and independence breaking ties with Portugal?Does someone have some answers for me?
As a child I witnessed a coup in Mozambique and evacuation.

I am a child of Africa, born in beautiful Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and grew up on a beautiful Tobacco Farm. I've moved many many times and do not really know where I want to put my forever roots down. I have fun doing everyday things away from my home, trying to see the wonderment of life through the eyes of a child. A day out, weekend away, week away...... And months' travelling hold magical memories and events. These are what make me who I am - cautious, adventurous, fun loving & hungry to discover colours, countries, geography, cultures and experiences... and I'm normal too ... tiring travel makes me frowny too sometimes. .... and my packing advice is take... passport, medical kit, credit card and your smile
