Every weekday, I wake up at 6am, which is just about the same time as the sun rises. I have always refused to use curtains in my room, as I really enjoy waking up with the sun on my eyelids and could sleep forever if the room is dark. On weekends, however, this means that I’m bathing in direct sunlight by 7.30. I usually manage to snooze away until 8.30, but after that it simply gets too bright and too hot in here. So I get up, get out, and take a walk around my still sleepy Maputo. Or continue polishing those job applications.
