This was taken through the front windshield of my friend’s car somewhere along the 15 hour drive from Maputo to Beira. This is the national highway. Yes, yes, the equivalent to an interstate highway in America.
And yes, it is perfectly legal for that pick-up to be carrying all those people like that. I love this photo because it’s something you would never see in America, and yet it’s such a typical Mozambican scene.
