You got away with breaking the rules about not carrying a camera, obviously--did you have an armed guard, or what? It's a nice journalistic shot of a place most of us wouldn't dare enter, given the warnings that get issued. We see everyday life quite vividly here. Thanks for bringing it to us! Regards, Ken.

Default To kensimage: Mozambique safety

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the critique. I think the rule about not carrying a camera applies more to the city because that is where people are hanging around to snatch valuables from foreigners. The main problem, I was told, was with people answering mobile phones - and then when they are concentrating on their call, someone appears out of nowhere and snatches it. Out in the 'suburbs' where I was, I suspect a foreigner with a camera is such a rare sight, that it wouldn't occur to them to snatch it - at least not straightaway! No, I didn't have an armed guard with me, only a taxi driver whom I hoped would help me out of trouble if there was any - but fortunately there wasn't any.

Cheers . . . David

PS: A taxi wth an English speaking driver is only US$8 an hour here - a big change from Paris!
