The Road

Below are two photos that capture some of our daily reality – one of them very happy.  After bumping down the road to our house for months (and pretty vigorously since the rains started), the city brought in dozens of hills of a clay-like filler soil, then smoothed them out to make our street lovely and smooth!  What a treat.  The second picture shows Kevin replacing the brakes on our truck, much earlier than should be expected.  This was due to the constantly wet state they were in for a long period of time, due to the muddy and wet driving.  Road conditions takes a serious toll on vehicles (and people’s backs and necks) in this area.  Remember the little Honda CRV we had a couple of years ago?  Part of the reason we sold it again was because the suspension was simply not tough enough to handle the rough roads of Nampula – it could make it through sand and potholes, but the cv joints couldn’t handle the abuse.   – C
