Shortly summarized this last week at Lovasoa in Antsirabe has gone very quickly. Over the weekend we had a visit from Maria and Maria who are other Connect students living and working in Antananarivo (Tana). While they were here we attended a concert where two choirs sang gosple songs. Quite often the audience joined in - we were even encouraged to. I loved the experience because of how interactional the performance was, and it was fun to try to understand a few words.

Then, a couple days ago we experienced, what for me at least (and likely all the other Norwegians), is the most powerful hail downpour I have ever seen. The hail was often the size of sweet peas (!!), and a river of water passed across the basket ball field and down the path. Yes, we ran through it to get to class - and got soaked. When our teacher arrived, we changed our minds and decided to have class in our apartment where we could change to dry clothes.
Take a look at Silje and Jenny's blog for a cool film showing the hail (in Norwegian): falyaho.weebly.com/
Just thought I'd write some quick stuff before I pack up and prepare to leave for Fandriana today. I am excited for the adventure ahead, but I don't know exactly what to expect (for example regarding internet - because it is limited and expensive so we will choose an amount once we get there). Now to packing and buying a months worth of toilet paper.
