Internet Connections in Maputo

Favorite thing: Along the avenida mao tse tung, taking a left from Fatimas as you come out, and going towards the junction of the main street , on the right hand side you would see an internet place..

ali from lebanon - Maputo

ali from lebanon

Ali, the literate Arab

Favorite thing: Despite the desparate economic situation in Mocambique, it would be hard to believe that there is still migration into Mocambique..
Ali, migrated here from Lebanon after the war stopped, along with his two cousins botht of whom are illiterate. they run two or three small shops .. selling bread, coffee and such. obviously they have prospered..

Fondest memory: It is nice to make immediate connections with people.. who share with you centuries of transmigratory patterns.. after all my own people have been migrating all over the world for more than 2000 years...

Faculty of Medicine - Maputo

Faculty of Medicine

Hail Jefe, Nuestra Comandante//

Favorite thing: People may hold different opinons about Fidel Jefe y Comandante de Cuba. But one thing no one can deny him.. NO SINGLE LEADER IN THE WORLD NOR ANY COUNTRY HAS HELPED AFRICA IN MEDICAL TERMS AS HE HAS.. Being a Doctor involved in Humanitarian work, this brings me great pride to be associated with a country which does so much to provide health care for Africa

Fondest memory: I will have an opportunity hopefully in the near future to teach the cultural aspects of Medicine in Mozambique.. THE FACULTY OF MEDICINE IS ALMOST ENTIRELY MADE UP OF SPECIALISTS FROM CUBA...

If you wish to help the students who are from
Mocambique and Sao Tome, please bring medical text books in Portuguese if you have access to them...
