    Hello,

    Such a nice price may I ask you from where and which airways.

    Thanks.

    Madagascar Road Connectivity Project (P166526) is confirmed and the financing of 140 Mio US $ done by International Development Association (IDA) through the WorldBank. In question is the contractor (from China or Egypt).

    If the Chinese contractor gets it, assume its done in 3 years. If its done by the Egypt group, perhaps it will become a Pyramid?

    Yes. There's a multi lane highway under construction. When I was in Tana in 2019 I saw Earthworks under construction. Judging that probably 70% of the construction budget disappears in somebody's pocket. I'd say 30 years is a fair estimate.

    La Buse.

    I used the road from Antsirabe to Morondava in 2019. This one is fairly new. Only a couple of years old. Then it starts to deteriorate. In every rainy season parts of the road are washed away. Eventually it degrades until there's only potholes which the Taxi Brousse negotiates with Max speed of 30 kmpH. Arrive in Madagascar with plenty of time. 3 months. Time is irrelevant. The most important is to arrive alive. Not fall victim to Road traffic accidents or street robberies by Dahalo.

    La Buse.

Chinese road construction work was in progress, with a long way to go. The thing is that when this road is eventually completed, parts of it will already be falling apart and need repairing. Just the way things are here.

    On different posts here I have read that Africa beginners should go to Kenya and more experienced Africa travelers should go to Madagascar.

    What are the reasons for that? I get that in Kenya they speak English which makes the language barrier go away. But what are the reasons beyond that?

    Some reason I could imagine of would be:

    - Madagascar is larger, hence more difficult to travel around.

    - much more expensive flights from Europe.

    - less tourism, hence less infrastructure.

    Stuff like corruption and safety I don't consider, as I don't believe that Kenya is safer than Madagascar.

    What else am I missing? Is it the girls attitude?
    The lack of infrastructure seemed extreme to me. I was lucky to have an experienced wingman with me from start to finish. But combine the very formidable language barrier with almost everyone unless you know French, lack of A / see on the coasts outside of the main cities of Tamatave and Nosy Be, extremely questionable roads on a lot of the island, etc. I went to Kenya 15 years ago and the infrastructure was much worse back then. But Madagascar in 2020 was a lot worse. If you do decide on Mada, maybe do Nosy Be, fly to Antananarivo, the take a bus to Tamatave on mostly good roads. Also it might be fun to also visit Ansirabe by bus from Antaninarivo. I loved the highlands that I saw except for the capital which looks mostly like a dump.

    Fady, I would strongly comply with.

    Yes that lake is fady too, to swim in .

    First of all in decency and respect of the culture. How ever strong they follow this rules them self nowadays can bee in question but does not matter. But one thing for sure, if you brake the rules they likely looking for cash.

    Taking a swim (....)

    There are lots of videos of jumping and swimming in the lake. However, I asked the driver and the Guide as I was thinking about things like that. They said: No problem.

  13. #4678
    Lake Tritriva is a volcanic lake, 15 km from Antsirabe. There's a strict Fady (= Malgache taboo) for this lake and swimming is not allowed. A story tells of foreign divers who took the risk; they never returned, and their bodies were never found. If you boast of your adventures swimming in that beautiful, green lake, disregarding their culture and get beaten up, then don't complain.

    Bathing in the hot springs however is OK.

    I don't think they use any contraception simply bc too expensive. I did many single mums and they didn't seem to care so vasectomy recommended. No need to get vulnerable for nothing.

    Nice reports, Bienenstich! I'm curious if the girls in Mada use any contraception or are they willing to get pregnant from your seed? Do you happen to know anything about it?
