I am sorry it has been so long since my last update, but that is a good thing I swear. I have been very busy, and definitely a good busy. But I got to take a little break from all of my nutrition work (which has been my focus lately) when my friend, Maeve, came to visit me from the states!
Maeve and I went to high school and college together, and we also swam, played water polo, and worked at the pool together for several years. She graduated from Michigan last May, and has taken the year off to do some traveling before she begins dental school at the University of New England in the fall.
Maeve and I took a trip south over the two weeks she was here, joined by some German volunteers and some other Americans. I got to plan the trip, so we went to some of the places I had never been. This included two national parks and a beach town on the south west coast, near Toliara.
I really enjoyed when my mom wrote a post about her trip here from her perspective, so I am attaching the link to Maeve's blog. You can see how she enjoyed Madagascar, and follow her on the rest of her trip around the world!
Since we are not permitted to travel our last 3 months (so for me, starting April 18) this was my last vacation in Madagascar. And it was a good one! The next time I travel, it will be en route to America!
