1965 SOUTH AFRICA TOUR : Ben Oostdam, October 6 , page 21


At the border with Moçambique, I declared my two cameras (minox and stereo), took out car-insurance, but did not change any money. The road was narrow and sometimes lined with cactus-like plants for miles. There were many pedestrians, mainly women, and always carrying some load on their head. They all greeted me politely. I stopped and changed clothes. I picked up a hitchhiking police sergeant who guided me in French and Spanish into crowded Lourenço Marques (now Maputo), with its fine harbor. We stopped opposite the S.A. Embassy, where he got off and I took an hour's snooze.
