Fortaleza de Maputo

From our outing a couple of weeks ago when my friend Heleno was visiting. This is the old Portuguese fort in Maputo, complete with the most beautifully engraved cannons I've ever seen.

How nice to see these pics! They remind me of when you were at the fair and I came round to visit.
And you look gorgeous in that dress! Well done Ali!

~Bart - Yes, it is one of the few historical monuments here that has been truly well-preserved. It was fun to take photos there - I'm learning to use a big camera that my dad gave me for Christmas last year.

~Abzdragon - Thanks, girl!

~Francesca - I remember those days. That fair was intense! This green dress is one of my very favorites, and perfect for the insane heat of that day.
