I’m standing on the edge of a large canyon (or “lavaka”) that represents massive erosion due to deforestation. So much of Madagascar’s red soil has been eroded that satellite pictures show the countries rivers vividly “bleeding” into the Indian Ocean. I remember the oppresive heat and glare during the long trek across a scorching savanna of red soil and scrubby grass to get here.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
