We Survived PC Mada (We Didn’t Start the Fire)

We survived PC Mada

We’re done eating rice

Oh Oh it is so nice

We survived PC Mada

Now we’re RPCVs

What does all this mean?

 

Host Families, LPIs,

Off radar alabis,

Evil ombys, endless broussing, PCTC food

Leaky rooftop, vanilla murder

No moto rides? Crowing rooster

Rice rice rice rice rice rice rice rice

Drunk men are so rude

 

THB, rice fields, lamba prints, make a deal

AC, Where’s the wifi and some sweet potato pie

Vaccine campaigns, and beaches

Mountains filled with leaches

All night concerts, fetching water

How can we say goodbye?

 

We survived PC Mada

We’re done eating rice

Oh Oh it is so nice

We survived PC Mada

Now we’re RPCVs

What does all this mean?

 

We missed Netflix and AC, constant electricity

I was tacos and oreos and hot showers too

Corn chips, chocolate cake, guacamole, cupcakes

All the Cheetos and some BBQ

Install shopping, I want to buy everything

 

The rules change with new admin

Budget cuts mean no new friends

Can’t go out at nights, the dahalo will fights

Everyone having fun, isolated fly site

 

We survived PC Mada

We’re done eating rice

Oh Oh it is so nice

We survived PC Mada

Now we’re RPCVs

What does all this mean?

 

Mosquitoes are the worst, dysentery not the first

Typhoid, cholera, don’t get malaria

Kids still get polio, all these have got to go

No TB for the win, black plague is here again

 

Mangos, oranges, lychees, coconuts are peachy,

Corossol and limes, no fruit for you, all mine

Lemons, bananas, can’t find this at your grandmas

Custurd apples, jack fruit, what the heck’s a bread fruit?

 

We survived PC Mada

We’re done eating rice

Oh Oh it is so nice

We survived PC Mada

Now we’re RPCVs

What does all this mean?

 

Baobabs, sunburns, hanging out with lemurs

Dug out canoes, beat all the travel blues

Swimming with the sea turtles, whale sharks are worth the hurdle

Ringtails, humpbacks, rainy season, clap back

Tsingy after dark, see all the natural parks

Andasibe, blown away, what more do I have to say?

 

We survived PC Mada

We’re done eating rice

Oh Oh it is so nice

We survived PC Mada

Now we’re RPCVs

What does all this mean?

 

Traveling to Tana, see the flora and the fauna

Up north, boat to nosy be, stay cool

So far to go, Fianar, where’s the closest bar?

Brousse stuck in the mud again, can’t leave SAVA, no new friends

Only rides an omby cart, not long till your butt smarts

Diego, flooded road, where is the commode?

15 hours still to go, how can something be so slow

Tamatave, Toliar, We can’t go there anymore

 

We survived PC Mada

We’re done eating rice

Oh Oh it is so nice

We survived PC Mada

Now we’re RPCVs

What does all this mean?
