Streets of History

One can see both the remnants of Mozambique's revolutionary and cold war era in the street signs in Maputo. I especially enjoyed seeing the corner of Ho Chi Minh and Karl Marx. It might be better if Maputo's streets were named after people important in their local history. Of course, that might open interpretation of Mozambique's history and, as Americans know, that can dredge up a lot of skeletons. Perhaps it is best to let sleeping dogs sleep.
