File:Mozambique - traditional sailboat.jpg

English: Off the northern coast of Mozambique lies the island the country is named after - Ilha de Moçambique. It was settled in the 1400s by Portuguese explorers. Today, the island is inhabited by local fisherman. This shot captures these men hard at work in the stunning blue waters of the Indian Ocean. –
Français : Pêcheurs de l'île de Moçambique maneuvrant leur bateau à voile dans les eaux bleues turquoise de l'Océan Indien. Cette île à donné son nom au canal du Mozambique ainsi qu'au pays auquel elle est rattachée. Colonisé depuis le XVe siècle par les portugais, elle n'est aujourd'hui habitée que par des pêcheurs locaux.
