What a beautiful, colorful world we live in! So much for blending in...
Marvelous, Stephen, marvelous.

Am surprised the fridge does not say "Smeg" on the front. What an interesting place to visit.

You may not believe me, but for a moment I thought the birds were people. Giant fridge!

I'm surprised that the indigenous primate population haven't cottoned on to the fact of on-tap cold cola.

We're called Akany Avoko - google us and you'll find our contact details. Whether or not you can come I hope you're having a fantastic time in this most absurd and beautiful of countries.

Dear Stephen, do you have any time spare at the tail end of your visit to Madagascar? I run an improbably jolly children's home for 120 kids about 2O minutes from Ivato airport, Antananarivo - we would love to welcome you for a visit if you have the time.

Absolutely horrid for the environment, but ingenious (and beautiful) nonetheless! :)

That colour of that fridge would go with absolutely nothing else in my kitchen (except maybe a certain fruit in the bowl).

Very clever man indeed.

cerealjoe 2204 days ago

Ah... I should use that example as a case study for my PhD, so many things to say concerning the mechanical and environmental aspects!

Reminds me of Egypt, everyone there is an entrepreneur, especially at the pyramids.

he is indeed a very enterprising man. Though it didn't occur to me that paraffin is the same as kerosene, or at least the derivative of it.

Oh, wow. I'm usually a Pepsi drinker, but a cold Coca Cola out of a glass bottle in the desert might taste a little like manna from Heaven. =0
