Day 22 – Flight home

Paris, Portland

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

We are flying Air France home the whole way:

11 hours to Paris

9.5 hours to Atlanta

5 hours to Portland

We have 2.5 hour layovers in between the stops. So all in all a 30 hour trip!

All in all it’s been a fun trip – and very eye opening. It’s hard to vacation in a country where people work so hard for so little money, but very good to be enlightened to their way of life. Also the 95% deforestation and the resulting ecosystem degradation was hard to see, but also a good reminder of what’s at stake in terms of people learning to coexist with nature.

The constant driving during our tour also wore on me. But I cherish the time I got to spend with Christian, especially at the wonderful Anjajavy, all the new animals we got to meet, and all the warmth we received from the Malagasy people.
