|Antananarivo- Madagascar's Capital (view from the Mission office)|
|Our workout room, nice eh?|
Our area is called Analamahitsy, we're out in the sticks, or Ambanavohitra, as people here call it. It's the coolest place ever! We get to walk through rice paddies every day. And it's legit mountain hiking everywhere. We live in the town, but the area is way out on the other side of the mountain. I'm making an online photo album so you can see, because I can't describe it nearly as good as the photos.

|The very sturdy bridge to our next house!|
But this place is awesome, the kids are all insane. We get like 12 kids in every lesson, just cuz they follow us inside and everywhere we go. The kids are puny too, even the older ones, so I can just toss them around, it's fun for everyone. Oh, and the drunks, the drunks are hilarious, they love talking to us. I find I get my best language practice with the kids and the drunks.
|These kids are nuts, they live right by the office. They were shooting us with their guns.|
|They LOVE digital watches.|

It's so hard to understand most people. I felt like I had a good grasp on the language until I got here ha, but it's coming along slowly. Pray for me, cuz it's really difficult.
Everything is still pretty new, but it's not as hard to get used to as I thought.
This place is so different from home, every house is one room, probably half the size of a bedroom back home. Dirt floors, sometimes cement. But it's crazy, I'm so glad I got to come here, coolest place on Earth.
I love you guys!
