The above panoramic was taken from our berth at the dock.  The pictures below were taken looking towards the town.  It was a large town with lots of building going on and lots of cars.

     There are 30 Metical to 1 US Dollar, but we were able to shop with dollars at the Feima Market.  That is where the shuttle bus dropped us off.  It took 30 minutes to get there and 20 minutes to return to the ship.  It was a wonderful open-air market with paintings, wood art, clothing, and jewelry.  We bought a little of everything.  I bought my first t-shirt today!  We started packing for our overnight safari.

     Our entertainment tonight was a new show featuring West End and Broadway songs “Beyond the Barricade” with the UK’s leading Musical Theatre Concert.  It was an excellent show.

     We received a note stating that tomorrow morning everyone has to go to a mandatory “face-to-passport” immigration inspection, starting at 7 am.  You have to carry your passport while in South Africa.  After breakfast, we will be meeting up with Bonnie and Rich for our overnight safari.
