A Week in ABE

This truck blocked the road during our trip to Antsirabe. I can’t figure out what he was doing to slide down the mountain backwards that way. I can say with assurance he will be standing in the unemployment line soon. With the road blocked to ABE, I put Anna and the kids on a train […]
