I certainly will Antonio! :)
I've not been to Mozambique but have been to 2 of the countries that border it - Tanzania & South Africa (Mufasa the lion is in Eastern Cape SA). I would love to go back to Africa - Botswana especially to the Okavango delta, Congo to see the gorillas (if it is ever safe to travel there)...
It is great that you have family photos as you will be able to see how much things have changed when you do go back to Mozambique!
