Maxixe, day 12

Hello everyone!
Today early morning we left the city of Beira bound for Inhambane, specifically the city of Maxixe. Although it was a long and tiring journey and some timetable constraints, we arrive full of energy, eager to share experiences with the staff of the “land of good people”. Rosangela (member of the Humanist Movement who came from Maputo to organize events here during the passage of WM) anxiously awaiting us at the bus stop.
After we were installed in a fantastic location overlooking the sea, and had lunch and talked with the organizers  of WM here to know the exact plans of the day, we went to the venue which was a beautiful room of the Pedagogical University (the 2nd largest and oldest higher education facility here in Mozambique). The 1st part of the event was a small exhibition of photographs depicting various activities organized nationally and internationally for the WM and various explanatory materials. The expo was post ceded by several videos about the WM, which were presented by the introduction of Tania (also a member of the Humanist Movement who came from Maputo to organize events here during the passage of the WM). After the videos a short explanation on the meaning of this march and what we have learned along this route was given by the spokesperson, Samira Weng followed by a moment of interchange.
The event lasted for more / less 1h: 30 ‘
Toward the end of the day we had a dinner with local delicacies while we planned for tomorrow.
