Live happy, live hiding
The Mikea, a small, forest-dwelling tribe in southern Madagascar, move with stunning ease across the blazing hot sand, indifferent to thorns, scorpions, snakes and heat. They are a solitary and free-spirited people who travel wherever and whenever they please.
When they get tired, the Mikea sleep wherever they happen to be, for as long as they like. The next day, the cycle begins again, time marked only by aging and welcoming newborns.
