Top Ten Reasons Why Driving in Mada is Different than Driving in the United States
Madagascar (Mada) is roughly the size of Texas, and just like the United States, Mada has major “highways” for traveling North, South, East, and West. However, the road conditions in Mada are not quit the same.
|#1 Cattle: In America you may slam on your brakes for the occasional deer, or if you’re from our neck of the woods in Florida, an alligator. In Mada screeching to a halt for a herd of Zebu, goats or chickens is an everyday occurrence.|
|#3 Speed Bumps: AKA “potholes”. Really, potholes isn’t even the best word. More like craters that open up from nowhere and try to swallow the vehicle in one gulp!|
|#4 Kilometers: Painted rocks which resemble tombstones help us keep track of how many kilometers we are from the next town. They are surprisingly accurate and help us pass the time due to the fact that the license plate game is not an option here.|
|#7 Rest Stops: Tall grass on the side of the road. No need to say more.|
