Madagascar, "The Red Island" for some, ...
... the big Island for others, ...
A thousand and one qualifiers for this exceptional land still relatively preserved from pollution, all-round development and its flaws, sadness and selfishness!
Warm! It is the first word attributed to Madagascar by tourists from the 4 corners of the world to travel on foot, by bike, in Taxi-brousse,…. As soon as you leave the lost paths, you rediscover what Humanity, Brotherhood, ... SIMPLICITY means!
Exotic !! Various ecosystems mixing tropical forest and savannah. 2 faces too, Antananarivo and other big cities in the West and the bush, between tradition and belief.
Amazing !!! Here, humility is essential! We "arrive by conquering" and we leave with the observation that we have lost a lot: generosity, solidarity, resourcefulness, adaptation, ... and so many other values!
Of course, some leave disappointed, but whose fault is it? To fully experience this trip and explore the Grande-ile, you must first prepare for it:
To travel to Madagascar is to accept being on a pirogue and to let yourself be carried by the breeze and the currents! ... Rowing against the grain will not do you any good!
have a nice trip
