The Mozambican handshake
The Mozambican handshake is no throwaway affair. It is a four- to six-stage act that requires engagement and is fun to do. It ends with the thumbs meeting and snapping off each other.

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?
