I just found out that in these few days which I have been living in Maputo that it’s no longer as strange a place as I thought, and that things are hard when you are in a foreign country. Especially like Moçambique where a lot of people don’t speak English, and you almost come across as an english professor, but who knows? I guess the one who has been there like myself, Asante, have to tell the story.
The interest, as I am learning how to speak portuguese, how to create networks and their culture etc,They are also expecting me to teach them a lot of things. For example how to speak English, Chichewa – my mother language, and also to teach them about my culture. Which does not allow me to be quite in every activity because every one is in need for someone to stand by their sides. It is so interesting because I feel like I am home, and making friends here is as simple as eating! I have a lot friends with good smiles on me, and I am hoping to make a lot of them through good strategies.
And though life has it’s own difficuties throwing you in different adventures you have never been before, I hope they only make you stronger than you were before. Through this adventure I am learning a lot so to speak, and because of usual stuff which you have been used to doing it’s hard to change automatically. Yet I am so happy that in Maputo I am finding things I love a lot. The things I am doing are also challenging. Like working with children, which is my hearts favourite and is only making me to go deep in my goals since I am seeing a lot of motivation, I am in another side, but everything seems to be by my side home sweet home dear MAPUTO.
