Didn't sleep particularly well in my hut, and was wide awake before 06.00. Amazingly, wasn't crippled with stiffness after yesterday's walk:) Quick breakfast of bread with apricot jam and coffee and on the road before 07.00. More amazing scenery on the way to Ankify. We stopped a few places along the way, to see vanilla, coffee and peppers growing …

The boat was hand made, wooden, with hand carved wooden oars, and our guide and the boat owner and Steve rowed us around the mangrove forest.

So all my clothes, toiletries, shoes - all I have are jeans and shirt. Steve dug out a nice pair of his shorts for me, that do fit, and at least he has deodorant and body wash!

A proper Mercedes Sprinter and a responsible driver drove us in about 8 hours to the place were we wanted to get off. The Ankarafansika National Park. We did a nice walk over there, met a new group of Lemur. These look if they have a wintercoat on! Visit an impressive canyon and a crocodile lake.
