Ponta Dobela - Mozambique
Their biggest problems are the elephants who invade their homes and eat their crops. The only thingsthat was asked of us was "Por favor...quando vierem ocupar essa terra, arranjarem condicoes para nois tambem." And this is the whole purpose of our trip.
They dont have access to hospitals, markets, transport, all those things that we take for granted, and spend most of our time criticizing, they just dont have it. So our roads need a little work, and our politicians are the most honest people in the world ( I cant believe I just said honest and politician in the same sentence). But what I see in these people, The willingness they have to make what they have work for them. There’s no point in complaining, if you cant be heard than do something about it. We need to estabelish a give and take relationship with our comunnity. All we do is take, take and take, it's about time we start giving too. What do you say?
All I can say is this was a humbling experience. And I didnt hear this from anyone, or the radio, or National Geographic, this is 4 hours away from my house.
