I was taking a beatiful opportunity for having a picture at the rotating sky, as in Metangula there was no electric lights or power generators when I was there. But... military men thought I was a spy, using IR films to take pictures of the navy base! Yes, they have a Navy base in Metangula, in the case Malawians or Tanzanians would envisage to invade Mozambique starting from the Niassa lake shores... I had to spend a bit of a time in discussion in order to defend my film roll!
Metangula Off The Beaten Path
There are a couple of tiny islands, just facing Cobue, some ten miles North of Metangula. Officially, they belong to Malawi, because the first Anglican mission in the region was established there and still is there. Of course, Mozambican fishermen are the only living people going around. If you're lucky they might have enough fuel as to ferry you there; unless you want to row, or rely on winds.Related to:
