"I love these giant tortoises. They can live to be almost 200 years old! Tu'i Malila, a Madagascar radiated tortoise who lived in Tonga, died at 188."

Tonga soa Amanda! We are very happy you found us. Where did you teach? Tana?

We hope you find the Madagascar Network useful and invite other people living in Madagascar or interested in the country.

So do we. We know our friends are OK, but its very sad about the 100 people that died. Hopefully now things will be stable and food prices will come down.

Lucky you! I really fell in love with lemurs during our trip, especially sifaka.

Thank you. We really look forward to seeing your photos!

We were only there for a little over a month, but it made a big impression on us. We wanted to go back this year but because of the political problems we are going to wait for a while.

Thats great! I don't play but many of our friends do. One of our customers is an ukulele maker.
