The first of the national park visits for me, a nice wet place with micro leeches to be careful of, lots of birdlife, lush vegetation. It's raining outside as I write this so it seems kind of fitting, I didnt get much rain while I was in madagascar but this was one of the spots. The breakfasts at the place I stayed here came with an omelette which was a big improvement over the jam and stale baguette I'd got at earlier locales. Even when some of the breakfasts were a little disappointing, this was never the case for lunch or dinner.. Except for one particular lunch that I'll go into later.
I took my waterproof (3.5 film) camera here, but just a waterproof cover for my digital would have been better. The pictures are much worse here as they're pictures of sub-standard pictures.
Saw a fosa (on the night walk but took a bad piccy) which is a type a predator (nimble fox/cat/mongoose looking thing) that hunts lemurs (YES they do have a predator) Saw chameleons, and pigmy lemurs but failed to get any decent piccies of those either. The piccies are up here (taps his head) so if you want to see them you'll have to go yourself.
