... Exotic spices, trophy sport fishing, gemstones, hashish, hookers, everything and anything can be found or had. Traded and haggled for. Not quite Las Vegas as it's hotter and steamier and lacks the lights and glitz, but it's pretty close by Malagasy standards. It's our last day here in paradise.
