A village on the West coast of Madagascar, July 14th, 2011. It’s about 8:30-9:00. Right off the main road, when you enter the village coming from the north is A….’s “hotely kely,” a small wooden stand in front of her house where she sells “mofo vary,” rice bread, coffee and tea every morning. She is there at 4:00am to prepare everything. Around 5:00am, people start to come. It’s really busy until 7:00 or 8:00am, and then dies down. At her busiest, she can have 50 to 60 clients a day, which is on Saturdays when a lot of people from the nearby villages come to the village for the market, and from April to December. That is the time of the year when the people have the most money. A rice bread is 100 ariary (ar) (half a US cent), a cup of tea is also 100ar, a full cup of coffee is 300ar (one and a half cent), half a cup is 100ar, and a boll of tea is 300ar. There is no coffee because it is too expansive for the people to afford. She will be at the stand until 3:00pm, until she has sold all the breads and the yellow bucket, where the paste is, is empty. But also because it’s July, because she doesn’t have to go farm the rice field. November through June, she finishes by 9:00am.
