only 2 weeks to go, i am indulging myself with a mix of holidays and working trip in the Northern part of La Grande Ile. Cut in 2 parts it is still 2 times 12h of taxi brousse to reach my destination...
Yesterday at lunch time, after a hard working morning at the NGO headquarters in Tana (seriously i did work), i thought again about the proposition from my flatmate to leave at 3pm to the North for 8days. Never left such in a hurry and with such a random last minute decision, but that was great ! and it seems i did not even forgot anything.
After the 12h night trip from Tana to Mahajanga in Taxi-brousse, i thought i could indulge myself with a massage (Ravintsara essential oil, good for everything). Life is hard, specially after spending time around the swimming pool of the hotel, tasting all the types of natural juices from the menu.
This looks more like Africa, The Sun is shining hard, must be over 35deg at lunch, and no need to wear a jumper at night ! Looks like another country compared to Tana.
I ll be leaving more north tomorrow evening for another 12h enjoyable Taxi-brousse (osteopathy could have a great potential market here) to meet a colleague in Ambanja and visit some potential sites of mini hydro plant.
