His name was Christin and we was there exactly on time. His English was even better than that of Fidi's. This little man carried a little bag filled with 2 fieldguides for lemurs and 1 huge book for amphibians. All the recently known amphibians in Madagascar, wow, in Malagassy. He said the English version will come soon. What an encyclopidia! During the walk, he used a few times with enthusiasm. It was inspiring to see him trying to find anything and than trying to interpretate it.
The walk itself is kinda unusual. Walking in the dark, searching the dark forest with our headtorches. I liked it, but it is a hard time for your eyes. That is probably the reason why the walk is normally 1 1/2 hour. Our friend however was so fanatic, the 'balade' took a little 2 hours. Do you hear me complaining? No, it was great! Frogs, Mouse lemurs, Avahi's, thousands of chameleons and on top of that: a leafed tailed gecko. Hardly seen in this area. And a great pic from a Giant Dwarf lemur. It was an evening with highlights and completely satisfied we returned to Feon'ny to have our diner, at nine. Spaghetti with a Chines flavour.
