Madagaskar, my favorit country
The beaches are great

The seaside of Madagascar is amazing and has every thing to offer.
You can find small romantic fishing villages in front of unspoiled tropic paradise beaches. You can find luxury resorts on some of the islands in the north. You can go for wale watching, snorkling and swimming with sea turtles, fishing and much more. Some of the coaches are wild and untamed and some are quiet and peacefull. Always be aware of sharks, espeacially at the east coast. Sandflies can also be a problem.

And the children are very cute and curious.

The people of Madagaskar also called the Malgasy are primarily Maly-Polynesians who emigrated to the island from south-east asia (indonesia and malaisia) around 1500-2000 years ago. Additional population groups include europeans (french), indo-parkistans, chinesse and africans.
The malgasy people are officially devided into 18 tribes.
They are simple, calm and honest.
