Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Mozambique, Arts & Culture, Citizen Media, Humor, Travel

Lucas, a Brazilian journalist in Mozambique, on his blog A voz de √Āfrica (Voice of Africa), wrote a story [1] [pt] that describes peculiar and funny situations one may come across while travelling with the local transport called chapa.
