A night at a 5-star hotel

Chongoene Hotel Ruins - Mozambique

After spending a night at this luxury hotel, I was telling people that I spent a night in a 5-star lodge directly on the ocean... and all this was free.

Here is the hotel where I slept. It was really a 5-stars hotel, but it must have been closed for more than 20 years. I slept on the beach in front of the hotel...

Bad roads

Roads and bridges are often destroyed in the rainy season. In January 2015, torrential rains have strongly affected Northern Mozambique (and Malawi).
