Johnny Cash in Hell-Ville

[8/2/07 NOSY BE, MADAGASCAR – Dear Bzdega, I arrived on Madagascar’s Big Island last night. Right now, I’m sitting in a café in the largest city here, which, no joke, is called Hell-Ville. Really. The founder was named Admiral de Hell. Anyway, I thought of you because of the sounds I hear around me: revving engines of motorcycles, French conversations I barely understand and the sweet, sweet, familiar voice of Johnny Cash, floating across the street from an orange building with palm trees in front of it. This card will be in my pocket all day. Hopefully it will be with me as I find some interesting animals – maybe a lemur. Best of luck in frozen Michigan. – SUTTER]
