  1. Wonderful blogging! I love the Macolline photos, well done!! You write beautifully, you choose fab topics and your photos are nice too! So glad we met and hope to see you again soon.

  2. Thank you for sharing photos of people and places in Madagascar. It gives me a better visual (minds eye) of where you are and what you are experiencing. You look great! I am glad that you are assimilating so well to the Peace Corp experience.
    Much Love, DAD
