A productive day on the beach, Maputo

I walk up early and took of for a working day by the beach in Catembe which is within easy reach from Maputo city center. For once I remembered to bring my camera so took some pictures along the way.
In the afternoon Erkki and the two Finnish couples staying in the house joined. Me and Erkki had some productive work on one of my papers in a very inspiring Milieu which suited the paper dealing with design milieux in Africa.

Short walk in Maputo

Went for a short walk with my supervisor Erkki that turned into a 10 km walk including a ferry trip over to Catembe where we had a drink and some snacks at Catembe Gallery Hotel before heading back to Town and watching some crazy street parties outside the stadium as Mozambique was playing basketball finals in the all Africa games against Nigeria. Unfortunately Mozambique lost.

Hermanus, South Africa

Whale watching from the shore in Hermanus where we met the swedish/danish couple Hans and Anne. Last I met Hans was during SciFest 2007 where he took me for a swim in Kenton on Sea and that's where I almost drowned but luckily I lived to tell the story :)
