Awakening in Maputo

4:00 AM - The day starts with the birds singing on the trees. On the background we can hear the call for prayers from the nearest mosque.

4:30 AM - The city is very quite, and the lights are still on, contrasting with the sky that is gaining is colour every second. Guards clean the sidewalk, and some residents do their morning jogging.

5:00 AM - On the radio, the National Anthem is playing and the news from the day before are repeated. The sun is there, and people start filling the streets on their daily routine to the jobs.
On the surroundings, some run for water that is still not available to everyone.

Good morning, Maputo!
