Wonderful textures from the beaches of Mozambique!

The charming bedroom in our palm leaf beach house.

The rural communities are very poor and live off the coconut palms and the sea. The coconuts are used for food and the palm leaves for building houses. The hard wood of the stems for basic structures of houses and fences. Fresh fish and prawns are sold daily as well as fresh bread or 'pao'.

The palm leaves are woven together in the most intricate patterns. This was the wall of our seaside beach hut!
