For 1000 ariary (approx. 30 cents), you can take a tuk-tuk (a 3 wheeled open air taxi) around town.

I also borrowed a bicycle last weekend and biked out to the beach. There is a beach right near the ship, but it is not advisable to swim there. But a 1/2 hour bike ride got us to a beach where we can swim. There is also a restaurant, Ocean 501, right there on the beach. Even at an amazing beach front restaurant, prices are extremely cheap. You can get a meal for a few dollars.

In other news, the hospital is now in full swing and we had our Academy Open House this past Wednesday. I'll tell you more about both in my next blog posts!
