Hi, this is my page where I’ll post stuff about what I like to do and places I like to go in Madagascar.
My Trip To The Lighthouse
Two weeks ago we went to a lighthouse with my Grandma and my Uncle and two missionary families. We took a tiny boat out to the island where the light house was. I alway wanted to go there because we can see the light of the lighthouse at a beach we like to go to. After we got off the boat we walked along a beach and we found some cool shells and coral. Then we saw the place were we would eat lunch after hiking up to the lighthouse. After we hiked the long up hill hike to the lighthouse we went and saw some cool lemurs. My favourite part was climbing up the lighthouse. It was scary because it was super dark and the stairs were super steep. What scared me the most was Julia almost fell down the stairs because the stairs were wet. The good thing was there were tiny windows that light came through so we could see. At the top the view was amazing we took so many pictures. After that we hiked down the hill and ate lunch at a house. It was also amazing we had white rice, yellow curry rice, grilled shrimp and salad. Then we got back on the boat and quickly stopped at a mangrove swamp and then we went home.
My trip to our community snack stand.
This is our community snack stand that we like to walk to for lunch sometimes. The hardest part of going there is you have to order in Malagasy. I really like going there because they have such good food like dough balls, sambosas (we call them samosas back home), noodles and deep fried bananas.
The lady siting on the yellow water can is the owner of the snack stand. There is also a little girl who likes to yell “salama!” when we pass. “Salama” means “hello.” This place is where everyone in the community likes to go and chat at this snack stand and eat lunch and it is super cheap.
This second picture shows the clothes washing station beside the snack stand. People wash their clothes here because they don’t have washing machines or hoses at their house. People also get water from this place to carry home. They also sell eggs and a few vegetables there. The local people only buy two or three eggs at a time because they don’t have enough money to buy more.
Here is my post about the caves that we went to recently.
