When you get there, you get there. Therefore the bush taxi always arrives on time! In this instance, we didn't have a jack to fix our flat tire. So we all got out and rocked the bus back and forth until someone was able to wedge a large rock underneath the vehicle so we could fix the flat. We arrived on time to our destination nearly 4 hours later than expected!
Roberta is the granddaughter of a very good friend of mine! They became my family away from home.
This little boy was so enthusiastic to have his picture taken, and he had the perfect background! The natural beauty of this little island off the northern coast of Madagascar was truly one of a kind!
