ACTION: I walk toward the beach of Costa du Sol. At the beginning the human figures are sparse silhouettes moving alone, and then suddenly I get to the point where the confusão begins. I turn on the flash on my camera. The confusão, an almost metaphysical concept, is a great mass of people crowding along the beach, drinking, eating, and partying. This is the story of how the seixta feira get started, when the inhabitants of Maputo inaugurate the weekend in a sensual explosion of bodies, dance, roast chicken and music.
