Title: Border Zimbzbwe -.Mozambique
Weather: Clear Temp: 33C
This is a simple border but of course it takes a while for everyone to get checked out and go through customs. Done in less than an hour.
Entry to Mozambique involved multiple steps. We had to write an entry visa and give them in with our passports. Then we waited. Then we gave our visa money to Hugo to hand in. Then we waited. Then they called us one by one to take our fingerprints and pictures for our visas. Then we waited. Finally Hugo came out with our passports and new visas

Title: Arrival Tete
Location: Baobab Hotel
Weather: Sunny, hot Temp: 34C
We hit Tete right at rush hour and inched along in traffic consisting of cars, motorcycles, tuktuks and hoards of people. We were only 10 minutes from our hotel but that stretched out to nearly 40 minutes. It was pitch dark by the time we arrived.
The whole city is smokey from the huge number of grass fires in the surrounding countryside.
