When you take a break from bush taxis and hire a car and driver, the car's tire picks up a nail. If there's no rooster crowing at 4 a.m., there are pigs snuffling under the bathroom window. And when you find a hotel with internet access, the power goes out.
We're getting used to the challenges of traveling in Madagascar--in fact we're having a blast. But it may be a while longer before we can share our latest adventures. So, since we miraculously have a few minutes of internet access, a quick note to tell family and friends we're alive and well. Prepare yourselves--we plan to bore you at dinner parties with Madagascar stories for years to come!
