Salamanga Things to Do
Located in the center of the village, is also Eugénio Jamnadas - another former Portuguese colonial cantina.
Salamanga is a strategically located on the way from Maputo city to Ponta do Ouro in the south.
While traveling to the south (August 24, 2006), our group decided to make a stop in Salamanga for some shopping on the local store.
The store, Simão Mendes & Herds, used to be an old portuguese colonial cantina.
We bought a few drinks (=beer, of course), chatted with the locals, and proceeded on our way to Ponta do Ouro.

Salamanga Off The Beaten Path
In Salamanga I found an old refrigerator powered by petrol.
The actual owner says he bought it used in the year of 1962 and it worked until 2003.
The refrigerator has not been in use since 2003 not due to any particular broken problem but only because on that year, 2003, electricity arrived to Salamanga. Therefore, he decided to buy a new electrical refrigerator then.
