Public peeing. There has been an outbreak of this here in Maputo. It could be that I have only just started noticing it – or maybe it is only now with the warming weather that Mozambican manhood reckons its safe to expose their members to the elements.

And expose is the word – against walls, behind trees or in corners. The only rule seems that you have to make a semblance of an effort at protecting the public from your extravaganza. But just like when you’re a kid and think that when you shut your eyes no-one can see you, here it doesn’t matter if the tree is a sapling and you are facing onto the street – it still counts as 'discreet'. Well actually senhores - we can see the block and tackle - so thanks guys.

Meanwhile here is a wicked invention, a decent result from all the tens of billions NASA receives: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/3182744.stm
