Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in Tofo Mozambique (The NEXT Chapter).
Week 79, Saturday 19th December until Crimbum Day Friday 25 December 2015.
Portuguese word of the week: Feriado, which means “Holiday”, which is what this week appears to because sleepy Tofo has been invaded.
This is the week when a lot of the world shuts down. Here in Tofo you don’t get many mentions of Crimbum certainly not from the locals, thought a lot of the prices have gone up. The town is full of 4x4s and quad bikes straining to get up sand roads because there being ridden by very large South Africans in shorts with socks and sandals. The expats of course do celebrate; they don’t need an excuse to party, Tofo loves a fancy dress party, in fact there’s a dress up party almost every month the good people of Tofo know how to celebrate.
But I really can’t be bothered, yes I know that’s not good. I have spent most of this week unwell and at home boring the cats with my coughing. I have been ill before over here but this is the longest period that I have been out of the water.
Due to this week being special (it’s not, it’s really just another week but I don’t want to upset people that go all gooey around this period). I have decided that this weeks So-Called Blog will be the best of the worst pictures that I have taken since I returned to Tofo in September.
In other news this week. Had the regular Saturday Branco I had one pizza, Patrick had two, yes TWO. I finished the “No Parking” signs. Denise and I sat in the dark when the power went out only to discover that it was not a power cut but our credit had run out. Luckily I was put in contact with a man who can help even at 9pm. Lead an Ocean Safari in which Denise came on I think she enjoyed seeing Dolphins but not a lot else. I’m learning German as well as Portuguese now. Skype with Home on 25th, even though I’m not a Crimbum person I would be there and enjoy it if I was home, it was good to see them happy.
