This is a terrific little place that has been envisioned and assembled with real thought and creativity. It's a pleasant surprise in a city that struggles with infrastructure.

It is sad to witness the Maputo Central Train Station from the exterior. The structure was beautifully built however from the surrounding and maintenance it is deteriorating fast. Sad to see such a landmark being neglected.

The train station is being repaired and refreshed. What a difference a new coat of paint makes! Truly a tourist sight to behold. Good job Mozambique government!

You can see the grandeur this building once exuded but not it's been left to die slowly. Perhaps a bit more care would be good.
