I’ve been in an intensive material collection mode the past few weeks, hence no new posts. That will change very soon. In the meantime, here’s a slideshow of images (after the jump), mostly from Ronil, the neighborhood where I lived earlier this year. Actually, Ronil isn’t so much a neighborhood as it is a point of reference. “Ronil” is the name of the auto dealership at the corner of Avenidas Eduardo Mondlane and Karl Marx. It’s just across the street from the Hotel Universo.

Generous support for the research that allowed me to write Hotel Universo has come from the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and a Fulbright Program grant sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Dept. of State and administered by the Institute of International Education. But, of course, all content on this website is produced by me and is my sole responsibility, and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of any sponsoring institutions.
