Common speaken the North of Madagascar has a dry climate. Montagne d'Ambre has its own. It had more rain and a rainforest is established over here. Just a few miles before the park entrance the green lush begins. When we entered the park itself, we got our first walk of that day. The driver and the cook got our luggage to the bungalow where we would spend the night. Again it was a hike of some 2 1/2 hours with all kind of surprises. Chameleons, sanford's brown lemurs, crowned lemurs and all sorts of birds. We walked via the 'voie des milles arbres' to Station des roussetes after seeing the great waterfall. Amazing view point. At that time, it was lunchtime. We had a great meal and after that we had another walk. This time to the Lac Vert, another crater lake.

We saw lemurs enough. 3 hours this time and when we reached the bungalow we got some time for ourselves.

In the evening we planned a night walk. This time we were not so lucky. The reward: a mouse... and chameleons of course. Than I noticed I had lost my hat. Little bit frustrated and ashamed we took the whole walk again to search for it. Luckily Sabine founded it. Tiredness filled our bodies and slowly we got hungry. The meal contained crab! How cool was that. It tasted also great, and it was nice to try to break the scales. The amount of flesh however did not compensate the effort.

After the meal I offered a cigarette to Francois. His college (a guide who was accompanying an Italian bloke) tried also. We got a discussioen about the limitation in The Netherlands about smoking in public. Our guide and his friend had a delicious talking long into the night. We did not made it to the end. We were to exhausted and went to bed.
