The Rovuma river between Tanzania and Mozambique. This picture was taken on my way to Tanzania. The trip started in Pemba, where I took a bus to Mocimboa to get a charpa to the river bank to get a boat to cross over to the other side, where I walked across a beach to get another boat to take me to shore where another charpa was waiting to take me to Kilambo border post and Mtwara to get a bus to Dar es Salaam.
I loved this trip. I was hung over when it started. I got caught breaking the law along the way, I charmed a man into giving me a loan because I forgot to withdraw money to pay for my boat ride (I was really hung over). I also bullied a border official into letting me enter Tanzania without a visa so I could get to a bank in Mtwara where I took a charpa back to Kilambo to pay for a visa, then got a charpa back to Mtwara to get a bus to Dar to get a ferry to Zanzibar.
