Rui Veloso no Chitengo

O Parque da Gorongosa teve a semana passada um visitante que não
resistiu aos pedidos insistentes dos jovens músicos de duas bandas
da Vila da Gorongosa que lhe prestaram homenagem com uma versão
muito própria do "Chico Fininho".

No intervalo das visitas efectuadas a algumas das maravilhas do
Parque (Lago Urema, Falésias de Cheringoma, Quedas do Urema,
Cascata do Murombodzi, Piscinas do Vunduzi) e claro dos muitos
animais que o capim alto deixou ver (elefantes, hipópotamos,
inhacossos, facoceros, changos e imbabalas), o Rui Veloso cantou e
encantou todos os que tiveram o privilégio de estar ali naqueles dias.

Em breve a RTP Africa vai-nos mostrar um documentário sobre estes
dias fantásticos.

Streptocarpus Brachynema

These images are of a plant called Streptocarpus Brachynema. It is a true endemic, only found on Mt Gorongosa. It is listed in the Southern African Red Data List of plants as Endangered. There are more endemics, some very likely still undescribed. When I was on the mountain with the SA botanists we saw several things that appeared new.
