My week

Manaona! It’s time again to post a new blog post. I haven’t yet talked that much about what I do here on Madagascar in Tana. So I figured that now is the time! But to be honest: it’s not until now that our weekly schedule is kind of settled and predictable. I say kind of…

Infield!

Hello! Before it’s February I want to write a bit about Infield as I have said before. Infield is when teachers from Hald come to us to have teaching and fun together with the other students in the same country. Borghild and me arrived at the place we were staying in the afternoon the 4th…

Tana

Salama! This week is the sixth week on Madagascar and the third in Tana. The weeks fly by so fast and soon it will be December and Christmas time. This week I have started with most of the jobs. Because of the school summer vacation everything has been a bit delayed and therefore I have…

One month!

Tomorrow it has been one whole month here on Madagascar. As mentioned in my last post I have spent the first month in Antsirabe together with the other students from Hald. On Saturday I returned to Tana with the girls. We will all be together here at Akama for one week to have an introduction…

We are here!

Now we have been on Madagascar for 14 days. We arrived Thursday 04/10 after travelling for one day and one night. The trip was good with comfortable planes, good food and my own tv-screen with movies to keep me entertained. I also had good company in the other students from Connect and Interact. They are…
