Safely Home!

After leaving Vakona Lodge in Andasibe, we arrived home after 37 hours of travel.  We made all the connections safely and our bags came too!  We are glad to sleep in our own beds - and very thankful for hot showers still!

We discovered on Wednesday that the Malagasy call the Indri lemurs, babakoto.  So maybe we should rename the blog!

We will leave you with some photos of the domesticated, ex-pet lemurs at Vakona Lodge, whom we got to know quite well!  The fur is very soft, and their licks very gentle!

The mobbing!  First banana of the day

Matthew, and the brown lemur we named Grabber!

A bamboo lemur - eating bamboo.  They are shy and don't climb on you.

Ring-tail lemurs

If you want to see more photos (if you can bear it!) or share a Malagasy-style dinner (we promise the food is not unusual) and hear all about the Babbs' recent trip to Madagascar, join us at St James the Less on Wednesday, August 13 at 6:00pm.   Please email  / contact Sue, if you plan to come so that there will be sufficient food.
