TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel du Louvre Antananarivo
We are thrilled to be back in civilization and connected once more to the internet! After all, there is a pitched battle for the US Presidency being waged far, far away, and we have a lot of catching up to do! The hotel is very functional, and we marvel at how inexpensive the drinks are at the bar, and the food at the restaurant. As mentioned in my blog post, the usual problems sorting out the bill for a group at the restaurant were endured, but nothing that would make me give this property a bad review. Really great place to stay in Tana!

Visa line took a while and was a **** show. People were all over the place leaving visa line/getting luggage/sneaking back thru to visa line. Got to our hotel by 7 am after a 1/2 hour/45 min ride from the airport. Big culture shock for me right away. The smell, ...
... every day and what it was like to be married to a famous person. They were so kind, so interested in Dexter, and the questions were remarkable even if I couldn't answer them.
I have noticed a few things here that remind me of Dexter. One of them is the way the people walk in the street. The public transportation system is lacking to say the least. There are "bousses" that move through the city and people get on and off out of the back door while they are ...
... which could be used as needed for visits, or if those didn’t pan out, Marjolaine and I could get back some of the days we had worked through. On these trips I often work seven days a week for several weeks at a time (ministers work on the Sabbath – it’s often our busiest day of the week). Like most employees, we’re supposed to get two days off a week (or at least one if we don’t count the Sabbath) and the Church ...
... my passport and entry card and put in in a pile and waved me through. After he inspected it, another 3 men had to sign off and stamp it.
Finally I was given my passport back and retrieved my bag. I exited the airport, looking through the crowd of men holding signs for my specific guest house.
I knew that the first thing I had to do was to get money from the ATM. I waded through the men. "Taxi?" they asked as they showed me their laminated license. ...
