This week Pegman takes us to Madagascar., an island country in the Indian Ocean known for harboring cartoon zoo animals. Okay, just kidding. I’ll leave it to you to find the story in Madagascar. You’ve got up to 150 words, be it prose, poetry, essay, or a brand new format invented by you.
Feel free to use the location supplied in the prompt, or chose your own from the limited amount of photospheres and streetview in Madagascar.
Once your piece is polished, share it with others using the linkup below.
Route Nationale 5
“I’ve decided what our next adventure vacation is going to be. Madagascar!”
“Land of the lemur, of the best vanilla? Where my favourite Disney movie takes place? I’m in!”
“I thought you might. Now, while we are there, we shall participate in the RN5 Run. It could take up to two-three days to complete.”
“Da hell is that?”
“It’s a route that you can only take by Four-Wheel Drive. Only the most courageous take it. We have to time it because it’s completely impassable in January and February. The first leg is from Soanierana-Ivongo to Mananara and the second is from Mananara to Maroantsetra. We’ll see sheer cliffs, deep sand, mud (lots of it), jungle, animals, beaches, palm trees. We’ll cross rivers with man-made ferries, some using old oil drums—”
“Sounds dangerous and stupid.”
“Yeah. So, you in?”
“Hells yes, I’m in! As long as after, we take it easy.”
