Christmas Day in Xai Xai, Moz

More beach, lunch at the bar, lots of relaxing. The ocean waves were picking up in intensity. It is not a surf beach, nor snorkeling like Tofu is. Lots of Americans saying Merry Christmas to each other. One of our group Carla, who is not a PCV but was once, she has just finished an internship in Swaziland with Baylor and is returning to America after the trip, has been cooking each night. And she came prepared to make Christmas dinner. Unfortunately, there is no oven, only an electric pot boiler type stove. So that meant here Turkey & ham plans wouldn’t work, but she made mashed potatoes, corns, green beans, cranberry (imported from the US just for Christmas and for us) bread and her home made gravy.

A true American Christmas meal in a beach house on beach in Xai Xai Mozambique. The Eggebeen family has a new tradition. Christmas in foreign countries, Rachel & Cy first with Costa Rico then Bueanos Aires and now Josh in Xai Xai. Next year it will be Mom, Dad, Rachel & Cy in Swaziland.
