I found myself a fabulous backpackers, The Big Backpackers in Greenpoint. I actually found it during my predeparture planning stage of this holiday. I’m very grateful that I was able to keep the same hostel when I changed my itinerary a couple of weeks back to extend my stay. I’m very impressed with how welcoming this place is. I recall reading a fab article in some travel magazine in Mozambique about the backpackers as well. The rooms are small, but cozy with a private bathroom. There’s a great vibe at this place. It’s in a residential section of the city without the noise of the busy streets & raging nightclubs & bar, a perfect oasis after over a month in the bush.

It’s been a rather long day, but not as long as they usually have been. It feels strange without the dire need to wake up during the “blue hour” to meditate before chasing the light. It’s nice to see another part of this beautiful country. Embracing the dance as I continue to dance down the rabbit hole suckling the beauty of life…
