Mr. Driver picked us up good and early for another tour. We drove for about fifteen minutes until we arrived at a port side town. I immediately found a friend. (Love these guys, especially when I have a lot of hand sanitizer on hand).
And it became pretty obvious when we arrived at Lake Emerald!
My mom and I walked around like this for the rest of the day. At one point we went to a corner store to buy peanuts, and the owner of the store refused to make eye contact with us. Later we had to walk to the bank, and everyone stared at us like we were monsters. I can't decide if that's because we were tourists or what. I had asked both Mr. Driver and the lady that painted our faces if it was taboo for vazas to get their faces painted and they said it was totally fine. Interesting, I guess.
(Oh - and the clay mask? Not so good for the skin. Both my mom and I had major breakouts after. :) )
On our way back to the hotel, we got our driver to drive us to a restaurant so that we could check out the menu. We had been in Diego two nights and had yet to have a non-gross supper. No luck. We asked the hotel for recommendations and they had none. We walked around a bit, and then I somehow convinced my mom that we could eat peanuts, a granola bar, and then order up a scoop of ice cream for supper. It was the best supper that I ate in Diego by far. Unfortunately, it made my mom VERY sick, but only for 12 hours or so (luckily).
We had to check out at FIVE THIRTY the next morning. Not fun at all. But we were excited to go to our next desitination - Morondava!! Home of the Baobabs!
