Date: 17th August 08
Location: Vilanculos, Inhambane
Weather: Clear blue skies in the morning then windy and grey in the afternoon. 30°c
Status: Sitting and waiting for the weather…
Up relatively late and had eggs for breakfast then oranges, stretched and exercised!
Walked into the town and went to the market area to buy enough fresh fruit and veg for the evening meal. Asked one of the locals to recommend a good place to eat for lunch and he, John that is, took us through the market and to a little back street restaurant called Bar Ising…..much to the horror of Rachel and Savannah. They reallt didn’t like the idea of going to one of the locals eateries!!
We ordered four of the only thing they had on the menu, chicken and rice washed down by a fanta. In the end it was great food but the locals constantly staring at them as they ate we too much, I loved the interaction and revelled in the humerous exchanges with the female chef!
Came back via a couple of the businesses offering trips out to the Bazaruto Archipelago but as the weather was taking a turn for the worst they all said that nothing would be possible until Wednesday at least. Balls, more time sat around waiting.
Fishcakes and salad for dinner then early to bed.
