At the beginning of June, Anna and I visited a local church. Our crèche teacher, Grace, is actively involved in this church so it was lovely to join her and the rest of those who attend. The warm welcome, singing and rhythmic dancing is always a particular highlight when visiting a church here. And - not to be overlooked at this current moment in time - we were particularly impressed with their COVID prevention methods!
It, of course, hasn’t been all work and no play throughout this month. With the euros happening, we went to watch the England vs Germany game at Zeca’s house, our preschool teacher. We arrived to his house where his family of 8 and his brother’s family of 8 were enthusiastically waiting to welcome us. We all squeezed into the living room space and enjoyed eating cake baked by Zeca’s wife as we watched England win the match. As we left Zeca’s house, it was as if the party had just begun as his daughters began singing and dancing whilst waving mini England flags. To sum it up, it was a unique and delightful opportunity to be cheering England’s goals in the home of a Mozambican family.
