Madagascar. - After the long roads, villages and mountain bends, chasing taxis and enthused hooting, we arrived at Manambato on Lake Ampitabe. There was a welcome quiet as I waited on the white sandy beach before taking a one hour boat transfer to the Palmarium Reserve.
Things I saw from the boat. Local fisherman, villagers washing themselves, clothes and dishes in the water, some pirogue traffic, lush vegetation, clear waters flowing in the canals.
