We're Closed Now
I then called the Madagascar Embassy in D.C.. This guy answers the phone "Good afternoon, Madagascar Embassy" and when I ask for a visa application he says, "Oh, sorry we're closed now, call back Monday." I tried to ask what he meant and he said, "Okay, sorry talk to you on Monday." HA! Okay, I guess I'll try back on Monday.
The good news is that I have some new Keens that came in the mail a couple of weeks ago, I have borrowed a lightweight sleeping mat (thanks Tom!), ordered some Avon Skin So Soft in bulk (the good kind that is sunscreen and bug repellent), my dad is bringing me a headlamp and some military duffel bags when my family comes for Christmas next week and my doctor's nurse gave me the phone number for the county health department so I can figure out where to get my shots. So, I am making progress but only with the easy things. Ah, Africa here I come!
