I have spent the past week with friends KL and JL, who flew in from Dar to meet me in Maputo. We spent the week stuffing ourselves with seafood, cheese plates, egg tarts, and sushi. Maputo is a wonderful city with vibrant sidewalk cafes, great muic, and fantastic public art. It was made all the better with good friends.
Late one afternoon, we stumbled across a photography exhibition at the old fort in central Maputo. The exhibition, put on by Associação Defendendo os Nossos Direitos, aims to raise awareness about albinism in Africa. Albinos are widely discriminated against in East and Southern Africa, where there are many misunderstandings about the condition. In Tanzania, for example, more than 60 albinos have been killed since 2007.
Here are some pictures I took at the exhibition.
