We ran out of milk, so under normal circumstances I would hop in the car and head for the nearest shopping mall armed with a list of the things we need around the house and a bank card in my purse. Not so in Mozambique. Yes, there are shops in Mozambique and you can get everything you need if you are in town, but that would just be boring and we don't do boring. We headed for the Xai Xai market instead. I have been to the market at Maputo and expected something similar to it - rows of vegetables and a few shops selling everything from birds to hair extensions, maybe a shop or two selling African art... was I in for a surprise!
