The first time...

We were expecting for this day!
By 4:00 PM, in one of the most important avenue of Maputo, when Alice and the girls here returning home, 2 men tried to assault them, asking for "all the money and the cell phone".

Our God, always by our side, gave enought courage to Alice to resist them and to get away fast.
We knew this would be happen one of these days. It was today!

Almost there...

Well, we are about to finish all the rebuilding and fixings at home. A few more days and we will move.

To our friends, sorry for the inconveniency of being away from skype and messenger.

To get up by 5:45 AM every morning, we really need to change that "portuguese" tradition of staying late night at the computer.

Second day...

On the second day at their new school, Raquel and Mariana passed the courage test with an A, traveling for the first time in the "machimbombo", the school bus. Even more interesting was to see Mariana traveling in the afternoon, having an entire "bus" to bring her to school.

First day of school...

By 6:50 AM, we arrived at the Portuguese School of Mozambique for our daughters (real heroines!!!) big day!

Let's check what they thought about this first day:

" I like the school a lot and my new friends. I would like to tell you that there is a school assistant who also as the name Mariana like me, and another Alice like my mom. "Mariana, 3ºD"

" I've enjoyed my first day, and my new friends. The school facilities are great and everybody is kind. " Raquel, 6ºB
