So I packed my bag with all the necessary items that I have to bring no matter what - no clothes, no shoes, no camera or toiletries. The bag came to 29 pounds. Recalling my earlier post about weight restrictions for Air Madagascar, that means I have only 15 pounds left for all the items left out. I have to get the backpacking backpack on board for sure. I need my books, clothes, Frisbee, shoes, personal care items and gum to make the time live up to the latter part of "volunteering vacation" after all, right?
