Dicing with Death: Mozambique, Where Life Is The Strongest Thing There Is

For Bassunga and his men, the tree-lined road is full of obstacles. Each day, at the wheel of his old van, him and his co-workers take on the forest. Without any safety protection, they cut down around twenty trees every few minutes for meagre wages. This activity is completely illegal in Mozambique but brings happiness to the traffickers who then send the wood to China where the demand is huge. For the travelers however, the roads of Mozambique quickly transform into hell.

The night’s heavy rainfall makes their departure almost impossible but they don’t have a choice. The van must be loaded, if not, the day will be lost for Johnny. Between the impassable ruts and the traps set by the inhabitants, the 100km long trail will take on the allure of an odyssey.
