    Feb 21 2011: I used to live near a mountainside rainforest in northeast Madagascar called Marojejy. It's a wonderful hike, you pass through several different vegetation zones as you head towards the summit, there are a couple well-maintained huts/campsites to stay in, the birds, lemurs, chameleons and plants are unique in this world, the local culture is fascinating and welcoming... seriously, there's nothing else like it on Earth. And there are beautiful semi-deserted beaches just an hour or so away.

    (Get in touch if you want details on where to stay, hiking guides, etc.)

    Feb 20 2011: Everyone should have that experience where you stop short and really see a place - or a person - that you may have seen often before, and suddenly deeply understand its beauty. That has less to do with the place and more to do with the person's state of mind. A person can be wowed by almost any sight as long as they allow themselves to be.
