The train to Nampula, Mozambique (Andrea Rasetti)

The train to Nampula, Mozambique (Andrea Rasetti)

Author Comment:
A train connects Cuamba, near the Malawi border, to Nampula, an important town in northern Mozambique; it slowly goes through the country: at every station there is always the same scene: the carriages are taken by storm by people that wants to reach another place on the railway. In a few minutes a quick market takes place with people that sell from the sideways every sort of goods: vegetables, fruit, fish, wood, sweets. Maybe an en elegant woman sitting near you continues her trip with a live chicken in your compartment. I think that this image best expresses the real everyday life of a large part of Africa.
