The Ride to Half a Million Miles

Crossing Mozambique

After a couple of days on the shores of Lake Malawi it was time for my next destination  Harare but first I had to get across the small section of Mozambique.    This was the most difficult border crossing yet.  They still are not as hard as the ones in Central America but this one was a pain because the official as not in the best mood.  I had to purchase a visa which the official insisted I should have gotten the visa before arriving.  After some phone calls and making faces I was allowed to buy the visa for $80 USD for a 30 day visit. 
    Once I got all the documents done I was on the road again.   Mozambique's country side and its people are beautiful and amazing vistas.  Much like the rest of the Real Africa,  the people are very poor and live simple lives.
