Update from Chuck Rapp…
We have reached Ambilobe. So, about that four hour ride over bumpy roads? Seemed like it was more like 6 hours over continuously BUMPY roads! Here are a couple of photos of our ride. Somewhere in that pile are three pieces of our luggage. Top capacity today (I say “top” as I don’t think there’s any maximum) was 19 adults and 4 children!
Shawn (son-in-law) is here to greet us and make the rest of the journey with us. It’s impressive to see him carry on fluent conversations in Malagasy.
Tomorrow morning it’s a 2:00 am departure for a 2+ hour drive to the port city. Next is our long awaited boat ride out to Nosy Mitsio where we will hug on Angie and the kids!
