Inhambane Town


The rain coming in


We ventured into Inhambane this morning, to get gas, electricity vouchers (we have a meter here) fresh pau (local bread) and some chocolates of course.

Inhambane is a town recovering from a long drawn out civil war, there is a feeling of hope & progress here, the people are so happy & friendly. Our cottage fridge has given up the ghost after 14 years not bad & there is no one to fix it that we can find so we went looking for fridges too not expecting much. Well we were pleasantly surprised the local chinese and a couple of indian shops had some. We eventually narrowed it down to a defy for 17500 mets - the exchange rate today was 4.29 rands to the met. We emailed the committee to get the go ahead - still waiting. In the meanwhile we are using one of the freezers as a fridge and we are fine.


The sun shone brightly this morning but at about 2pm the wind picked up and turned the sea on its ear & the rain squalls began - we had got a touch of sun this morning in town walking around and of course in the pool after town so I had a lazy afternoon sleep woken up by hubby with coffee.

Last of the fresh fish tonight with chips & salad & we are going to enjoy chocolate ice cream later mmm no wonder we love relaxing here.
