It's starting to feel real! We leave for Madagascar on July 13th this year!
We will fly from LAX to Paris (via Boston). It will take 14 hours and 40 minutes including our layover to get to Paris (one 6 hr. flight & a second 7 hr. flight).
Then we have a 3 hour layover before our 10 and 1/2 hour flight from Paris to the capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo (Tana for short - much quicker to say and type).
We will arrive in Madagascar on the evening of July 14th at 11PM!
