Photographer's Note

Tete is a cruelly hot place in summer. Amazing that people stand around with the mid-morning temperature approaching 40 degrees centigrade. The maximum temperature of the preceding November was in the 50's. Capital of the province with the same name, the city on the banks of the Zambezi River was virtually landmined to a standstill during the civil war following independence. Little is to be seen of the Portuguese colonial architecture for which it was known. Deterioration is evident everywhere and there are few signs of development.
