Howdy! I recently got back from a two month honeymoon with my new wife, Louise. We spent a month in east africa and a month in Madagascar.
Here is a short video I made from the footage in Madagascar.

Wow, those trees look awesome!
…as opposed to the trip you took with your old wife?
I like the chameleon hanging out in one shot.
Lovely vids, Corbin and Louise. It’s nice to have connections to both of you (Lobster). Shirra and I knew Louise from years ago when she visited our old place in Brooklyn. And the baobabs make me think of “Le Petit Prince,” who visits a planet of baobabs and not much else. Considering that Saint Exubery spent time in Africa and other locale with those trees, I guess he based some of that book on his experiences. Or maybe he was just going for the oddest-looking trees he could find. They’re great!
Wishing you many happy years…
Yes, loved the trees, they look absolutely fake. Ridiculous!
i really liked it it was cool watching the kids on the uni those trees are awesome
Yeah, it was an amazing experience! French and Malagasy are the primary languages in Madagascar, so I didn’t have a way of verbally communicating with people, but I could always tell when someone wanted to try the uni. At one point a guy came running after us so he could give it a try.
The people were amazingly friendly. We would be riding down the road and all of a sudden the people would just crack up laughing as hard as they could. I could barely get a “salam” in sometimes (hello).
