Last nights concert in XAI XAI was pretty much straight through! We hit it and quit it. There was a good amount of people but the language barrier is a bit hard at times. The main language here is Portuguese. We knew they could feel the energy but they couldn’t really respond the way we wanted them too.


The drive to get to Xai Xai was about 3 hours and was extremely bumpy for the whole time. Upon arriving we saw the posters they had of us and they were photos we had taken from three years ago so it was a bit funny to see those after seeing all the new photos in Zimbabwe.

After the concert finished we then had an hour drive to get the hotel which we arrived at about 11:30pm. By this time everyone was starving but there was nothing open in the middle of the country at this hour. So we had to tough it out until the morning. Fortunately for me I like getting up early so I did my daily run on the beach. The view was incredible as I saw the locals out fishing and working.


The flowers are so pretty!


Here are the birds:


By 8am it was time to eat and I was ready. After eating breakfast and then returning to do some hotel work on my computer we left at about 11:51am. I have to say it was very nice to see another part of this country but I am glad to be back in Maputo. Lets see how this show goes tonight!

  1. It’s all good man! It seems each stop has something new to absorb. What a tour! AFAR is getting its Christmas presents early.

    By the time you read this, the show will be over. I hope it went well.

    Peace and talk to you soon.
