Up 5:30, breakfast was waiting for us at 6:00, on the road by 6:35 This time I took a seat in the back of the van to let someone else have a better view. Between the motion and exhaust fumes, I got queazy rather quickly. It didn’t go away till we got to our destination Andasibe 3 hours later. The driving is still a nightmare. I am curious about how many people are seriously hurt or killed on the roads. There are these mini buses that pack just as many people on them as they can. Rides on the mini buses are 400 ariary or $0.20. We got out of the van at Andasibe and took off on a 3 hour hike through the forest. The temperature was just fine, much less of an issue than in Florida. Even the humidity wasn’t that big of a deal. The first thing we saw was large spiders spanning a small stream. We were told they hurt if they bite, but are not poisonous. It took a bit of looking at first but we started seeing them in many areas. In one spot they were on the ground and walked within 12 feet of us. I shot a 150 pictures on the Canon and a bunch more on the GoPro. We got done with the walk about 1pm and headed back to Hotel Restaurant Feon’ny ala. This time we are in cabanas. I have one to myself, it even has mosquito nets over the bed. This isn’t roughing it much yet. Lunch was vanilla chicken with rice. It was ok and the desert was a crepe filled with jam. By the time we got done with lunch, it was already close to 3. Just taking it easy for a bit and trading text messages with Antje, we got back together for another meeting about what parts need to be picked up. It was very dark by 6:30. I was a bit tired, but we haven’t even had dinner yet. We met up for dinner at 7:00. I had the beef kabob and the banana nuggets for dinner. It was after 9:00 before I was back in my room. Much cooler here. Sleeping will be fine but it is chilly in here. Got to bed about 10:30.
