Morondava


20th of September 2017
A mountain of banknotes…

A free day occurred and therefore we had the chance to go much earlier to our beautiful hotel, Hotel Pallisandre
At 9:30 in the morning, we checked in, took our luggage to the room





and then went to exchange some money, since we had realized so far that cash was needed almost everywhere in Madagascar. After having spent almost an hour in the bank, we took plenty of Malagasy Ariari (the currency in Madagascar) banknotes and returned to our hotel, where we enjoyed our wine and ate the foie gras. Next, we took a long leisurely walk along the sea front 



and then we were back to our hotel again, in order to get ready for visiting the  Avenue of the Babobabs.

We took the N8 unpaved road (which stretches from Morondava to  Belo’ni Tsiribihina and eventually to Bekopaka, western Madagascar). While we were approaching the famous stretch of dirt road, on the west coast of Madagascar between Morondava and Belo’ni Tsiribihina, the first baobabs started appearing.

Breathless!!!

I stood still when I saw them and I just stopped thinking. My breath was caught…



Maybe I should check with a specialist this extreme excitement that I feel anytime I am near one of the “objects of my desire”. And I think the problem must be quite serious because my objects of desire are far too many…Endless, I must admit…

The amazing Avenue of Baobabs brought me back to the…Memory Lane of amazing places in our world and I suddenly had in front of me pictures of Ethiopia’s almost unearthly and magnificent volcanic areas of Dallol, Danakil depression and Erta Ale!!!
 


We covered the Avenue of Baobabs by car and on foot too. 
 


The magic photographs we took were never too many for us…
We returned to our hotel for dinner. Zebu and fish and also a wonderfully served yummy dessert next to the pool, was the last ultimate pleasure of a magic day.
