Market energy

Xipamanine is one of Maputo's oldest suburbs, with a bustling open-air market.

Photographer Rui Assubuji, who lives in Maputo, says the area is a must on the list of all who really want to know the capital.

“The force and energy of African culture, its movements and mysteries, are a stimulant to the imagination, to the happiness of living and being a participating witness to life in this part of the globe," he says.
