Madagascar - August / September 2008

I spent an excellent couple of weeks in Madagascar in the late summer of 2008. Unfortunately, I was there for nearly a month.

Seriously, there were a lot of great things about the country, but this trip also involved new levels of frustration. I made some mistakes along the way. But I also learned some things about myself - and about travel, in general. For details, read on.
