Rico and I arrived back in Maputo yesterday. Despite a nearly sleepless journey, the trip went well and we are enjoying the singular happiness of being home. The cats gave us an especially warm welcome, with Pria even letting me hold him for several minutes, all the while purring at full volume and doing torties in my shoulder. The little ones have grown so much, and they are now easily over 1.5kg and able to hop up onto the kitchen counter.
We all snuggled together last night in our bed and watched tv. It was wonderful, despite the jet-lag that had me and Rico up intermittently at odd hours.
Today I am working from home trying to finish the draft of a big proposal for work. I spent a good portion of our time in Brasil last week stuck to the computer as a result of this proposal, and I'm looking forward to finalizing the draft for tomorrow. I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but at least the document has taken shape and I am feeling the writing groove materializing.
It seems the weather shifted while we were away. Upon arrival we were greeted with gray skies, a bit of drizzle and very mild temperatures. I am hoping this means the horrific heat waves we experienced through most of February and early March are behind us.
Photos and stories from our "holiday" to come later, once my draft proposal is finished.
