Kids of Nosy Be

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Nosy Be island is a small, tropical island off the northern shores of Madagascar.  I recently went there on my honeymoon.  It’s a crazy place!  Most of it’s inhabitants probably survive on just a couple bucks a day and live in very poor conditions.  Most residential areas are made up of shacks and old broken down buildings.  It was strange to be staying in a 4 Star hotel and just outside the gates, people had nothing.  I couldn’t help but feel guilty everytime we returned from a day trip and saw these kids playing soccer in the field.  I walked down to them one day and tried to communicate with them but no such luck, absolutely NO English.  Pictures are definitely the universal language.
