Welcome to Hellville

Yep, that is the towns real name so you instantly have low expectations. A typical African town with a main market, busy main street, and of course, the Sunday marching band. What is a marching band without the obligatory local dog critiquing their musicianship by barking incessantly (last photo). The preferred form of transport here is Tuk Tuk, walking and the slow but very efficient bullock and cart.

Nothing much is open here on a Sunday and the only opportunity I had to get a local sim with a data plan was this morning. I am off to Nosy Komba at 2pm where I will stay for 6 weeks and it has no wifi so it will probably be 5 days before I come back here to get a sim.
