Earlier this week, we were told that the driver taking us from Antananarivo (Tana) to Toliara could not fit all the baggage (i.e. all those wonderful, donated supplies) into his latest vehicle.
So after a few days of concern, we were mighty relieved this morning to hear that it is big enough - a Landrover Freelander 4x4 that can take all three people + 8 suitcases + 3 pieces of hand luggage. That brings a lot of peace to our minds about the week’s drive from Tana to Toliara.
The next need is for Air Madagascar to allow Air France flights into Tana!
Simon searched the internet this morning and discovered that the strikers at Air Madagascar have blocked an Air France flight from entering Tana:
We are flying Air France from Chicago O'Hare to Paris to Tana. So here’s hoping and praying that we (with all our baggage) reach Toliara in a smooth and uncomplicated fashion!!
