Mornings start early. A breakfast of French bread and a cup of tea with condensed milk sets me up for the day. The it’s off to child care to help the babies with their breakfast. There’s usually plenty of time to play after they’ve eaten. This morning, after getting bitten, dribbled on etc I wandered off to the village to make a stall holders day by buying 15 SIM cards from him. The malagasy don’t have many telephone boxes, instead the have the genius idea of a guy with a little stall and a couple of mobile phones who sits on a street corner renting them out by the minute. The calls are usually cheaper from these ‘taxi-phones’. I doubt he has many days when he sells 15 SIM cards! I’ll be popping back to the village in a bit for bribes. I have a lot of stuff that need translating so I plan to coerce people into helping me with chocolate biscuits! Well, it works in the UK!
