The taxis in Madagascar was one of the first sights that I witnessed on the way to the hotel from the airport when I first arrived in teh country.  If you don’t know your cars, or Madagascar for that matter, then you may not know that the country that is roughly twice the size of California […]

Rice Fields in Madagascar

Rice Fields in Madagascar

The rice fields in Madagascar was one of the first things that I saw when I set foot in Madagascar.  What a unique country this is, aside from feeling like Asia instead of Africa, they seem to be on a completely different level compared to the rest of the continent.  The cultures are completely different […]

House In The Countryside: Madagascar

Home in Madagascar

One of the things that really surprised me about Madagascar are what the poverty everywhere. You have no idea what poverty is until you really see the primitive lifestyle that everyone lives in encircling Madagascar. The pousse pousse drivers, which can be equated to rickshaws, run with bare feet.  There are some who actually have […]

Oh no she didn’t! She just had to walk around with that stuff on her face.  In Madagascar, exclusively on the countryside and outside of major cities, you will find many women wearing mask on their face as they walk around and complete their daily tasks.  This mask can be equated to the mud masks […]

The Madagascar Chamaleon

This little guy was found on our canoe trip when we were sailing down a river in the southwest part of Madagascar.  I joined a tour in order to see the Avenue of the Baobabs and Tsingy Stone Forrest.  We stopped to relax at a water fall and when we sat down to eat we […]

This white Lemur we found playing with his friends when we stopped our canoe trip to swim in a local pool.  We were in the southwest region of Madagascar on our way to the Tsingy Stone Forest.  The lemurs are really fun to watch since they are both intrigued and afraid of people at the same […]

Anakao, Madagascar is one very unique place.  The picture above was taken from the 3rd story of a building owned by the scuba diving company in the region.  I was able to get my advanced scuba diving certificate since Anakao has a very extensive coral reef in the region (Anakao is one the best places […]

There is an entire array of different types of Baobab trees to see in Madagascar.  This specific one that you see above is called the tattoo baobab tree.  The nearby salt water permanently stains the trees which leads to the unique coloration that you see above.  There are trees that have all kinds of different […]

Sunset At The Avenue of the Baobabs: Madagascar

avenue of the baobabs

Seeing the sunset at the avenue of the baobabs one of the best things that I saw on my trip to Madagascar.  After coming back from a treacherous 6 hour drive from the stone forest the calmness and serene view of the sunset in-between the trees was fantastic.  Getting a view of the sunset is quite easy […]
