    Valentine's Day in Tanzania. And Gorge Bush arrives Saturday with a committee of 300. There is a sign on the street welcoming him but it seems to be only one.

It is very popular with the tourists and it was extremely amusing seeing them all agitated vieing for the best position. At one point some very strange French woman started chanting some sort of weird voodoo. We just thought it was a beautiful sunset but obviously had some spiritual meaning. Up at 4am for a 3 hr drive to Tulear to meet the ...

    ... every interaction tainted by money, because every single transaction involves haggling to avoid extortionate overpricing. I don't like feeling like I can't trust anyone in case they are trying to scam me, because they very often are. But it's worth it, because the country is stunning.
