E as Cascatas do Murombodzi?
Um espírito de aventureiro recomenda-se se quiser chegar às Cascatas. Alguns subires e desceres das pequenas elevações desde o acampamento de Nhancuco até ao lugar turístico das Cascatas de Murombodzi. Andámos. Respondemos a alguns telefonemas nos sítios onde houve rede da Mcel. Acertámos e concertámos as actividades dos tempos seguintes ajudados pela Mcel. Depois só ficámos com as marchas para o destino. Rebecca teve que ajustar o seu psíquico e retirar uma das camisolas do corpo.

And Murombodzi Falls?
You’ll need an adventurous spirit if you want to reach the Falls. Climbing up and down small hills from the campsite at Nhancuco until the tourist site of the Murombodzi Falls. We walked. We received a few phone calls in the areas where there was Mcel reception. We confirmed and arranged our coming plans with the help of Mcel. Then we were left with only the march to our destination. Rebecca had to shift her mindset and take off one of the tops she was wearing.

De Chitengo às Cascatas do Murombodzi
Duas horas de uma viagem ambivalente pelas paisagens míticas

Local de partida: Chitengo

Já tínhamos começado com o segundo quarto das oito horas, quando Vasco Galante, depois de servir os assentos a todos e a mim também, sentou-se oposto ao Greg Carr. O filantropo americano sentara-se nas últimas cadeiras traseiras, lado a lado com a nossa VIP do dia, a jornalista da CBS (TV norte-americana), Rebecca Peterson. E eu claro estava oposto a Rebecca. À frente sentara-se o jornalista do Parque Nacional da Gorongosa (PNG), Carlitos Sunza, ao lado do piloto Bertus. O termo filantropo aqui simplesmente caracteriza as pessoas que não só buscam o bem-estar de todos por palavras, mas que tudo fazem com acções no seu dia e noite, entregando tudo inclusive as suas próprias energias para o bem de todos.

From Chitengo to the Murombodzi Falls
A two-hour tour of contradictions through mythical landscapes

Departure point: Chitengo

We had already reached 8:15 when, after giving chairs to everyone and to me too, Vasco Galante sat down opposite Greg Carr. The American philanthropist was seated towards the back, right next to our VIP for the day, the CBS journalist Rebecca Peterson (from the North American TV station). And of course I was opposite Rebecca. There was the Gorongosa National Park journalist, Carlitos Sunza, in the front, and the pilot Bertus was next to him. The term philanthropist here simply means a person who not only uses words to improve the general well-being, but who also takes action, day and night, giving everything they’ve got and making great personal effort for the well being of all.

Snapshot From Gorongosa

Rebecca Peterson, 60 Minutes Producer, tells her personal account of visiting and reporting on Gorongosa National Park:

“As I packed for my trip to Africa, I took along my new digital camera - although I'd bought it more than a year before and I'm the first to admit that it was a bit more camera that I can easily manage…”  Read More>
