    This forum is not for lazy bums, who expect to get information which cost me 10 of thousands of dollars to obtain to be handed on a silver platter. I know how to get a work permit and a residence permit. If you don't follow the exact procedure you'll never get it. And no. That's not the official way. But if you read every post of mine very careful you'll eventually find it.

    So start digging in the forum. Yes. Madagascar. You have to earn it to live there.

    La Buse.
    Yes, I have read all your posts on this thread. I respect them enormously. I have even taken notes on your writings, and I do carry two passports, I have read several books on Mada. The Brant book is on my list. I am just saying that there are more than one way to skin a cat, or so they use to say. If I decided to stay for more than a year. A work permit would be useful. Another way would be to extend my visa and fly to the nearest country, perhaps on the mainland, stay for few days, weeks, or even months and fly back. We have never met, but the at my age the things, that I have lived through, is enough to make a book from. People say the place I live now is dangerous. JAJAJAJAJA. I was in Mexico. For most of COVID, lived with people that HAD COVID, and still I am around to talk about it. Trust me, I am not a person that has never left their own country before.

    Just saying. No disrespect here.

    Right. We know

    When Count Benyowski tried to establish a colony all colonists were dead within 6 months.

    The island is best suited to pirates, fugitives, ex legionnaires, soldiers of fortune, outlaws. You'll feel like you're in paradise. Pussies stay at home.

    I take the outlaw ()

    With respect, you repeat your self and as for me as you might remember, I have been in Mada bevor. It is the matter whether I can travel or not and what Corona has made out of Mada its self. The first set up program will therefor appear rather on the boring side of possibility.

    Tana - Toamasina by cotisse and back. No panganales canal etc.

    Inspired ?

    The road of tears.

    2. Ability to get off the beaten track and see places which you otherwise would not because of logistics.

    2. Not having to backpedal to Tana every time but instead travel alternative routes around the country.

    3. No suffering in crowded taxi-brousses.

    4. No sweating. You are outside in open air.

    Until I realised that the area I wanted to cruise in (Androy / Anosy) is largely a 'zone rouge' meaning they are part of the 1/3 of the country where there is near no government presence / authority and where Dahalo rustlers roam the countryside. The chances of us meeting them in the cities we visit are near zero but we tend to forget they are there.

    Also there is a serious famine in the south now in the area between Tulear and Fort Dauphin. People are dying.
    Don't worry. There's a madman who did the trip through the zone rouge on a BICYCLE and actually lived to tell the tale:

    Actually what you plan is quite feasible as long as the route you choose is not too extreme. For example Tulear Morombe or even Morondave. But in dry season of course. To import your own bike is prohibitive. But there's an excellent Chinese bike which is sold under the brand name New Mada. Brand new I believe around 1000 $ new. I am not a biker myself. But I know plenty of bikers, mostly French men. Just avoid the too extreme tracks. I know of a French man who disappeared in the brousse with his bike never to be seen again.

    Your backyard also got a lot of garbage. No difference then to Mada.
