Colors of Maputo
Mozambician batik art on display at Maputo's weekly craft market form a frame around some of the merchants who are there selling their wares. Often the merchant is the artisan. They gather at the market every Saturday. During the week, the artists are either at home producing their work, or on the street trying to sell it.

When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
