Malagasy Introduction

Salama tompoko! Kara no anarako. Dimy amby roapolo taona aho.  Avy any Amerika aho. Manana rahavavy roa sy anadahy iray aho. Niasa ho mpitsabo roa taona aho. Mianatra teny Malagasy aho fa tonga eto Madagasikara aho ary hiasa eto. Tia an'i Madagasikara aho.Tsara ny fiainana.


A basic translation for all you non-Malagasy speakers (lol - I would still include myself in this category!):

Hello! My name is Cara. I am twenty-five years old.  I have two sisters and one brother. I have worked as a nurse for two years. I am studying Malagasy because I came to Madagascar and will work here. I like Madagascar. Life is good.

This is a delightful treat Heather and I came up with: chocolate chip cookie sandwich with a hint of peanut butter and generous portions of vanilla and chocolate ice cream in between! HA HA HA! Yum. :0)
