Another jam-packed day begins with the drive to the Capital city, Antananarivo (called “Tana” in brief), and beyond to the Lemur Park. Here we have the pleasure of close encounters with even more varieties than we have already seen in the wild. They are not caged, but they are in a smaller area than would otherwise be available to them …
... But it quickly becomes obvious that this isn’t the entire story. With every wake-up and restart to her breathing, there is a longer breakdown and pause. So I sit. So I bag. So I breathe for her.
Puff puff puff. Come on sweetie.
It’s been a while now. Her family in its entirety sits outside the window, watching me through the opening behind me. Soon I will have been here for two hours, breathing for her, reminding her ...

In absolute revolt we tried to negotiate for a fair price. “It’s the price of night” was the retort. Who could argue that? All the taxis stood united for once. No negotiating, take it or leave it.

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!
