At the airport of Antsiranana, again, a lots of cab drivers were waiting. One dude had a sign containing my last name. At least, it supposed to be. It was that nobody waved with another board with more likely words, otherwise we were in doubt. He says in French that I must be alone. No way, we are with 2 of us. He sould have picked up another couple, but they did show up. After 10 minutes, finding our luggage very fast, we went to the cab. They were all yellow, how cute. We got the oldest one of course. It was a laugh. But it drove, at that mattered.
Hotel Colbert was for us unknown luxury. A shower what you did not had to held in your hand. Satelite television (with 6 canals from France) and a huge ceiling. Putting on the clamboo had some difficulties, but we managed. We made a little stroll in the city and we were charmed of the calmness. A lots of souvenirshops, we will do some shopping monday. We did our first terras, that evening and it was relaxing. What a town, already loving it. Striking: we did saw some old French dudes trying to 'flanel' and getting around with the local feminin youth. Hey, it is sad, but it did temper our mood. We made a deal with hotelowner to arrange a cab driver for tomorrow to see Merina beach.
