Xai-Xai Town Tour

A City of Contrasts

September 2006

The bridge over the Limpopo is the entry to Xai-Xai.
This is the Maputo to Beira express bus - 14 hours!

Built 1993, it survived the 2000 floods

By Contrast this is a typical country (definitely non-express) bus.

Brand new Bank Building

Sad abandoned house (click for historical XaiXai and this villa in new tab)

Beautifully restored Church

...contrast with the rundown apartment
