Why the fascination with Madagascar?

It all started a long time ago, on Matthew's second birthday.  It was a grey day, in November, spent at a small zoo in south-east England.  Around 4pm, Matthew was riding on Simon's shoulders and the zoo was almost empty.  The keeper feeding the lemurs, invited Matthew (and, thus, Simon as transportation) into the cage to feed them grapes.  Sadly, Sue was excluded.

Many years later, we met the McGregors - missionaries to Madagascar - and so the story continued.

So It Begins!

And so it begins. A blog for the Babbs family and our trip through Madagascar. To anyone who may stumble upon this, look for the real action to begin in July.

To anyone planning to "check out" our home while we're away, a wild yeti will be on guard, so don't even think about it!
