Now it felt like we could really ...

We finally left Diego Suarez and our dismal hotel, with its spectacularly uncomfortable beds and pillows, 5am wake-up with what sounds like the Malagasy national anthem, mosquitoes, and average food.
We'd been dreading the long journey from Diego Suarez, with everyone except Ella showing signs of 'troubles’ brewing the night before we left. The ...
