    From after the story:
    Mia Couto is an author and environmental biologist from Mozambique. The second novel of his Sands of the Emperor trilogy, “The Sword and the Spear,” is forthcoming this year.

    I didn't realize they spoke Portuguese in Mozambique. Thanks again!

    I just bought a digital album from this group (the same group made reference to in OoCQ) and I am loving the album so much I thought I would share this, a video of the group busking on the streets of New Orleans in 2010. The lead singer is, of course, the former circus performer. :vbwink:

    I hope you folks enjoy this as much as I do.

    That was very pleasant. :thumbsup: What an eclectic group of talented individuals! :newpalm: Reminds me of some of the street performances that I experienced in New Orleans while in my early twenties. :vbcool: As an aside, the guitar player looks boringly ordinary. :vbgrin:
