Rova

I got a cheaper than usual aiticket from Johannesburg to Antananarivo.

Stayed a few days at a very reasonablr place at the Lalana Ranafits Rahoerason staircase between Lalana Rainandriamampandry and Arabe Rahezavana in the town center.

Founded 1625 Antananarivo became the capital of the Merina kingdom 1797 and french in 1895. Today it is a very busy town, but you stil see a lot of french style buildings, parts look like some little mountain towns in the south of France. See the Rova (Queens Palace) and next to it the Prime Minister's Palace.

Went to Andasibe from the Gare Routiere de l'est by Taxi Brousse (shared taxi/minibus) to Moramanga and an other Taxi Brousse from there, for other directions there is the Farakana bus station and the northern bus terminal. Get around by taxi or shared taxi.

When leaving Madagascar i stayed next to the Antananarivo airport  in the Manoire Rouge.
