I wrote a book, With Both Hands Waving, about travelling through Mozambique in 1999. It as just been re-released as an e-book and sells for R130. Click here to buy a copy.
One critic has written: “Incorporating contemporary conflict and historical tradition in Mozambique, this travel memoir chronicles the experiences of a team of South African journalists who journeyed up the tropical coast of Southeast Africa and across the interior land of Mozambique in the 1990s. The travellers observe architecture and devil worship, nature and war, snorkelling and cooking, and encounter aid workers, backpackers, bandits, prostitutes, and ordinary Mozambique citizens along the way. With humour and sharp observation, this account captures a pivotal moment in Mozambique’s history after the bitter independence struggle and devastating civil war when the country, its people, and the narrator must redefine individual and national identities.”
