For those of you who liked the look of the hotel my grandmother ran from the mid-Sixties to the mid-Seventies, you may like this picture taken of the beach in 1972. I received it courtesy of a blog-reader who lived there at the time and now lives in Portugal. If I were at home in Cape Town, I'd be able to delve into my photograph box and retrieve lots more pictures from those times. I shall have to remember to do some delving when I'm next there.
Incidentally, while Maxixe is a small tropical town on the Mozambique coast, it may interest you that it is named after a Brazilian dance.
