Antanaarivo is not a happy place. It has too much poverty and too many people. As we were leaving we drove through a tunnel. At the side were 3 little 4 year-old girls playing as the soot and exhaust of the passing cars poured over them.

In Madagascar we talked to a guy who ran an orphanage. He had 120 children. They had schooling, vocational training as well as room and board. (I have included a couple pictures from the orphanage). I told him that I could find him another 120 children just by walking through Antananarivo (see picture of little girl sitting in car tunnel). He said he only needed to walk three blocks from his place and he could manage the same, but he wants to keep the number at 120 and the quality high.
