Someone recently asked me where we live, so I thought I'd share a bit about the town of Inhambane.

Inhambane is located on the coast in the southern part of Mozambique. (Left, and down slightly from where the map reads Mozambique Channel)

The climate is tropical with hot summer months and pleasant winter months. The town of Inhambane was settled first in the 10th century by the Arabs for slave trading. In 1498 it was claimed by the Portuguese who later set up a trading post.

The province of Inhambane is the second largest grower of cashews and also produces coconut and tangerines. The coast supports fishing, as well as a growing tourism industry with its beautiful beaches.

These photos are snapshots I took recently in town.
