Nosy Be the big island, is a happy, and happening place. It's has an international airport, international music festivals, and is a bustling and prosperous place. We extended our stay on the island to avoid the torture of a 24hr taxi brusse ride back to Tana. Donia festival was too much fun. The Afro-Gasy shake-shake music will really get you moving. Great beaches, you can buy fresh pineapples, oranges and bananas even samosas without even getting off your ...

Cocoa is their main crop, along with pepper,(green, white, and black) ylang ylang, verviter (sp?) and patchouli. The latter being distilled for the production of perfume.

My accommodation was nice, owned by a guy ...
I initially planned on avoiding touristy Nosy Be but after the surrounding islands have been recommended to me for diving I decided to give it a go to gain more practice at diving. Whenever I got to Ankify people were jumping on me trying to sell me one of the spots on their boat. I think I got a pretty good deal. The boat was alright and left pretty early so I didn't have to wait in the burning sun for too long. It was a nice ride although I had a hard time watching ...
