Lee Kasumba touches down in Beira Mozambique on her #AfricaConnected journey and she is shocked that tea costs more than a beer.

Lee Kasumba is on her Standard Bank Africa Connected journey, and has arrived in Beira, Mozambique.

Kasumba says her first impression of the city was that it's both cosy and spacious.

She has been travelling across Africa to discover just how easy it is to do business on the continent and to gain insights into Africa's markets.

There is also a lot of construction happening and you can tell even at night as we were driving around that there was a lot of informal trading.

Lee Kasumba, broadcaster and podcast host

Kasumba will be visiting the port on Monday to find out more about the business entering there.

The influence of the Chinese in Beira is very huge. Even when people talk about prominent landmarks they talk about the Chinese restaurants and resorts.

Kasumba says she was shocked to find out that tea is more expensive than beer in Beira.

Listen to what else they witness on their arrival...
