Boy is it raining! Yesterday morning it was bucketing and our end of 25th September (the main street in downtown Maputo) was soon underwater. It relented in the afternoon and there were many relieved faces among the Mozambicans - the memory of the floods in 2000 is still fresh. But by evening time it had started again, really heftily this time, and I went to bed with the verandah half submerged. When I woke up it was still going and has begun to cause a reasonable amount of chaos - half the workforce in the city either can't get to their office or has to stay at home to save their possessions from the água.
