Weighing In

Two weeks ago while in the capital city, Antananarivo, we saw quite the entrepreneurial spirit at work.  The guy in the photo above, was making his way through the neighborhoods, weighing people for 50 Ariary, the equivalent to 2.5 cents.  The crazy thing for this American mind of mine…. people were lined up to weigh in, especially women!  A lady would stop whatever she was doing, step on the scale with crowds of people surrounding her, peering to see the number displayed.  She was then either joyful or disappointed.  Can you guess for which?  Disappointed if she had lost weight and joyful if she had put on a few kilos.  I’m pretty sure you won’t find that in Los Angeles… or New York City, or Washington DC, or any other part of America for that matter!
