BV staff and vols were invited to a ‘Jus Concert’ in aid of a sports scholarship for local school kids. For the small fee of 1500ariary we were greeted by home made juice (well, orange squash) and plates of nibbles containing peanuts, crispbread stick type things and a wonderfully fresh bread roll (the true piece de resistance). Only a small group of us went down but it was actually really nice. The catholic mission had basically been turned into a chill out area with a TV in pride of place on the ‘stage’ playing some classic Malagasy music videos, so we sat and chatted, drank and munched the afternoon away.
