It was almost a tropical shower. Somewhere in Antsirabe we were dropped into a little house. Here we got a workshop from the guy who invented the miniature vehicles artisan, at least we had to believe Ny. Did not matter, it was some fun to see how he made from all kind of mini garbage a 'petit' bike. This huge dude had also a 'petit' voice what was amusing to hear. After that we were enthusiatic enough to buy a little car for our nephew. In the same building we saw women embroider cloths. And, of course, there was opportunity to buy. After some hesitation, why and what, we noticed a bag. It was usable to bring to Petit Paradis and can be handy if you want to buy and 'emporter' some baguettes.

We had enough time, so we could go to a stone shop.

If you are a geologist, this must be paradise. But for us, it was just nice to see how it works all these sculpturing. The welcome was warm, but after some minutes when it was obvious that we were not interested enough in buying some stuff, the farewell was fast, still friendly, but firm. No problem. Bring us back to the hotel please. We had enough for today.

In the evening we used the pousse-pousse again to go to Chez Jenny. Still it rained and we were dropped by the restaurant what was about to open. Before the dinner, we had a nice drink and enjoyed our pizza's. Getting back to the hotel made some difficulties. Probably, the pousse-pousse guys had waited all the time we were in the restaurant and wanted money for that. Thanks to our bad understandig of the French language we gave them the money, but still it was frustrating. The surrealistic way back through Antsirabe was spoiled by the greedy men, who just want to have some ariary.
