Fish Market in Maputo, Mozambique with Zeb the Duck

Isaac met us at the hotel entrance and we are going to the fish market today.   I, Zeb the Duck, have never been to a fish market.   Isaac finds a taxi for us.

I like this little one.   Driving out of town, I love the painted cement on the side of the road.

Great painting by road

The photo was taken from the taxi, and guess mom got a mirror reflection in the upper right corner.   Typical ocean scene here, with a boat, a man to the left watching the water, and a bird flying overhead.

Watching the water is so relaxing for ducks and humans.   We have arrived at the fish market.   Going inside, I see that there are fish of many types, sizes, and colors.  Let’s start with shrimp.

Large, fresh shrimp look tempting.   But look at these fish.

The color variation is great, but guess when they are cooked, the color is not important.   And the bright blue catches my eye.

So many choices.   What to do with these fish?   There are many restaurants here.

Humans can purchase a fish and the restaurants will cook it as you request.   We did not know that.   We sat here, ordered grilled fish and waited.   Soon the fish arrived.   On the left is our taxi driver.   On the right Isaac and mom are looking at the fish.

Humans, ready to eat

All humans are ready to eat.   We have three whole fish.

And I mean whole fish.   At home they don’t bring us the fish heads.   But here they are.   We see something new every day.   Lunch was delicious.   I am sitting here with the Indian Ocean behind me.

Boats are in the water and a human is walking on the beach.   I could sit here for hours.   But, we have to go now.   Along the road near the fish market, we could buy more fish from this lady.

Or maybe coconuts from this gentleman?

Very tempting, but we do not have a kitchen in our motel room.    I enjoyed this drive along the water.   Love the fishing boat.

Of course palm trees always make my vacation better.

The people of Maputo work very hard, but the atmosphere here is calm today.    We hope you visit Maputo and also have a great experience.
