Photographer's Note

I mentioned in my last note that I had a great experience at this island. Well, it was paradise. After a four hour long boat trip with the engine falling off, we reached the island. The first thing I did was running to the first little hill I could see, and this is the view that met me there. In the distance you can see a local fisher with today's catch.

Bazaruto Islands is a national park and is sometimes called "The Pearl of the Indian Ocean" together with Sri Lanka. The main island is famous for its sanddunes, freshwater crocodiles and many sandbanks. All the sand visible in this picture would be below water when tide came in. There used to be several hotels at the island, but today only the two most expensive ones are left, and these are truly not cheap. Therefore, if you want to visit, I suggest living in Vilankulo on the mainland where you also can experience the real daily life of Mozambique. Then do these boat trips to the nearby islands.
