A poor city eager to leave behind its past
Maputo did not leave us indifferent. We go to it in our car and for free. The traffic, in its big avenues, is dense and crazy and it looks very poor. Maputo is a city that has suffered but it is more alive than ever. We got out of the car looking for a tourist info office. The work was in vain. Just half a dilapidated government building with barriers on each floor. We went to one of the hotels that was more elegant which had an agency. It was at the top of the city, hence the picture changed. In it, you feel safer but also less interested. We ate a tasty breakfast in a Portuguese seaside beach bar where we could absorb the tranquil environment and decadent port.
