PLACES WHERE I NEVER BEEN

















Probably never see, so I let my imagination go where they are .....

Madagascar

Is legendary wildlife and flora,Isolated from the continents 160 million years ago, Madagascar followed a unique evolutionary path into enormous tortoises elephant birds, and lemurs. Lemurs were the highest primate formon the island until the Malagasy people, of Afro-Polynesian ancestry,arrived a mere 2000 years ago. Though divided into at least 18 tribes or clans, the Malagasy share a belief in the power of dead ancestors.This belief explains the importance of tombs and funerals. Although the form differs among the clans, it is after the first burial that the Malagasy honour their dead. The best-known ceremonyis the famadihana of the Merina people, a joyful occasion to communicate with a loved one whose remains are exhumed and wrapped in a new shroud. Some of the world’s most unusual birds are found only on Madagascar – gorgeous ground-rollers,the diverse vanga family, the couas.

Madagascar! When I sailed onboard a oiltanker towards Venezuela, (this happened 45 years ago!) we had just passed Azores, talked with another deckboy that we'll take the ship's lifeboat and we'll sail down to to Madacascar.

We did not. :-(

One day I'll take
a rowboat, and Madagasgar;
here I'm coming!

PS. Also sorry for typos, but must say that Bill's haiku is great!

i have absolutely no desire to travel abroad Elaine, i am 61 already and have no passport nor do i have the money. With wide variety and and incredible diversity, traveling a distance of 100 miles in India is like going to a different country. Language, food culture changes every 100 miles. I keep traveling always Elaine. Since traveling in India is not very expensive, i hope you would visit us in near future.

thank you Elaine
