October 4: We take the long bus ride back from Isalo to Tulear, there to board a plane to Antananarivo and then to Paris.
Children besieging our bus as we pass through Ilakaka
We arrive in Tulear a couple of hours before our flight is scheduled, so spend an hour in the Arboretum. I was taken with the tangles,
the spines on flora and fauna,
and the strange shapes against the sky -
Suitable last images of a wonderfully strange country.
