Only In Madagascar

Lured by the how exotic Madagascar seemed, this was my next destination.  I came here because of the unique flora and fauna of the island.  Little did I know that I would be intrigued just as equally by its people, culture and way of life.

When you typically visit Africa, you do a lot of driving.  But you find yourself seeing so much more than scenery while on the road, because the main arteries take you through villages where we were a witness to the daily lives of the Malagasy which were an interesting people with a mixture of African, South East Asian and Arabic taking on different aspects of each culture.
