Here's a happy family shot! Last night we had a big Canadian send off for our friends Cortney and Guillon, who head back to Canada on Friday. Cortney is the one in black and Guillon is the one wearing the Canadiens jersey. They had been up in a small town in northern Mozambique called Mocimboa da Praia for the past three months and it was great to see them back in Maputo for this past week and get caught up on all of their stories from the field. Life certainly was a lot more difficult for them up there than for us in cushy Maputo as they suffered robberies, work delays, visa problems and incessant marraige proposals from an assortment of locals.

The other folks in the picture are Wes, Cathy and Caitlin...Peter got stuck taking the shot!! The potluck was a riot and the food was fantastic. Cathy and I always talk about how we never use our dinning room set nearly enough so it was great to see it loaded up with friends. We ate and drank our fill while reminicing about all the good times we've had here in Mozambique. It is coming to a point where a lot of the close friends I've made here will be moving on, leaving me to make new connections and friendships in this wonderful city. Still it sucks having to say goodbye, especially to such genuinely good people like Cortney and Guillon
