Just don't do it in Thailand, they're not afraid to fight back.

No, Madagascar is a wonderful land unto itself. Where else can you find lemurs , the smallest chameleon in the world, and
an aye-aye


The biodiversity of such a beautiful place is being cut short each day. It is a shame to let these wonderful creatures go by without appreciating their beauty.

If places like this, this, and this don't scream out zen, then I don't know what does.

Yes, it is a beautiful place. I took a course with Prof. Laurie Godfrey, a Primatologist whose primary reseach is in Madagascar, and learned a lot about lemurs. Madagascar has terrible problems (that are driving the lemurs to extinction)...all magnified by the fact that it is an island. Poverty, lack of birth control, erosion, deforestation, lack of protein sources (yes...they EAT lemurs there), and a nasty civil war/political problems.

My mother won't let me go on that field trip.

Strangely enough so do I!

But that's because I am biased [and I'm here anyway] *and* it avoids having to spend wasted training hours at airports and sitting on planes!

We have plenty of lovely places like that both on my own property and in the nearby mountains which I can see from all my windows at home ... spoiled eh?!

Our dojo borders a native forest of about 500? hectares where people and planes have been lost forever..... in the summer it is lovely to train next to the trees and hear the stream.
