30. Fitness Studio Macuti Town


 As I am finally wrapping up my thesis, I will make a small post of just this image, which was taken on a walk with Jamal to the southern tip of Ilha de Moçambique an early morning in August 2013. I have been looking at spots where young men meet and hang out, and Jamal took me to the fitness studio where he used to train when he was still living in Ilha. You pay 5 meticais a week or 1 met a day and can train as much as you want. The place has a number of dedicated customers, who find working out a good way to spend time while finding regular jobs is very difficult.
