This is the story of Wendy and Andrea's intermittently excellent adventure in Madagascar in October of 2011. These posts are based on a journal that Wendy kept during the trip.
Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world. It is the home of eighteen ethnic groups, some 80 species of lemurs, and over 200 species of birds. It has rain forests, deciduous forests, spiny forests, mountains, and coastal plains. It does not have traffic lights, skyscrapers, Starbucks, or much money.

For some reason, Madagascar tree boas are rarely found in trees. I guess no one told them their name.
