Yesterday was a much more exciting day here in Tana as it was back to buisness as normal. Everything was closed on Sunday and hence the long blog entry as we killed time in the internet cafe.
We went to the lemur park in the morning where we got up close with 7 species, all of which we hadn't seen on our trip which was nice. Gina has some spectacular pictures and videos. We were the only ones to take the shuttle out to the park from Tana which was nice as we got to leave whenever we wanted.
Last night we went out to the local disco with our tour leader Sarah who is waiting for her next tour to start on Thursday. The bars here in Madagascar are typically full of prostitutes looking for "vazah" (white people) men so I was warned in advance that the locals would probably be all over me. Turns out they left me alone, but one of the local guys had his eye on Gina. Still it was a confusing evening as the first person who asked me to dance was a guy which was unexpected....and creepy. Still it was a fun night and an experience. I was by far the youngest white guy in the bar as most of the other white men were old, dirty and had the young local girls all over them which was disturbing.
Today we spent the day doing some last minute shopping spending the last of our Ariary.
Madagascar was fun, see you next time from France.
