The connect group are reunited again, and are in Antsirabe for a missionary meeting. Maybe I will write more about this weekend later, but for now I want to share yet another list – this time about when and why I think people honk so much in this country. Because, when you are a foreigner you start to notice things that are different than in your home country.
We have had some long minibus rides these past two months – the latest of which was a cultural experience in itself. During a stop, a group of boys was not a bit shy about leaning in the window of the taxibrousse to talk with us and practice their English. We also spent an hour waiting for someone who had bought tickets but not showed up. Well, actually we waited, then started driving, turned back when someone called the driver, waited again, and then drove on with the new passengers once they arrived. And when we were dropped off the driver waved over a pousse pousse driver and insisted on a lower price than he was given, and insisted that one pousse pousse was enough for both of us and each of our heavy backpacks (luckily it was a bike, not pulled).
So here goes. Honk to:
To you who are from Madagascar, have you noticed that there is a lot of honking in Madagascar? To you in Norway or the US or other places, what is normal to you that is not normal to the foreigner? Don’t assume it makes sense without an explanation!
