Gorongosa song

this from a friend:

"Num dos meus discos de vinil, tenho uma canção que se chama Gorongoza, cuja
letra começa assim:
Se à Gorongoza
Fores passear,
À Gorongoza
Hás-de voltar..."

Air Serv International Pilot (Dale Malmskog), coming from Beira Airport in aircraft N209TF - Cessna Caravan:

"1st flight to Chitengo in 3-4 years, flew 7 passengers from ADM Beira, including Director of Airport, Sr. Raimundo. Runway in excellent condition, with wind sock and runway markers. A great time!"

Director Provincial dos Transportes e Comunicações (Manuel Guimarães):

"Há sempre momentos emocionantes na vida. Hoje é esse momento da minha vida. Pela primeira vez que visito este maravilhoso lugar fico com a impressão de que, se Deus deixou ou fez sítios bonitos onde ele podia viver este sítio chama-se Gorongosa."

Director Aeroporto Internacional da Beira (José Raimundo):

"Estou extremamente satisfeito por ver concretizado a abertura da Pista de Chitengo no Parque da Gorongosa, fruto do trabalho de todos nós. Desejo muitos progressos no futuro".
