Bem-vindo a Moçambique! From Songea, it was a beautiful dirt ride to the border, then I slogged my way through sand on the other side. Me and a heavy bike are no good in sand. I made it to the first village and was invited to stay with the sole customs agent there. The night sky was amazingly brilliant! I could see stars just above the trees and huts. My Portuguese is coming back quickly and I managed to have some decent conversation. Eu gosto de falar esta língua bonita.

From there, it was an easy ride on hard-packed mud roads with granite peaks all around and grand vistas. I made it to Lichinga, the big town in the area, withdrew some local money, Meticas, bought a local SIM card, activated internet and headed for the shores of Lake Malawi or Lago Niassa here.

It's warm and there's a strong breeze blowing from the lake into my little beach hut Agora, para um pouco de descanso...
