After a good nights sleep in Tana we head east to Nofy and the rain forests.
The trip was 9 hours by 4x4 with the last part proving quite gruelling and testing the drivers skill. This was followed by an hour and a half boat ride up the fresh water canals. The difference between the east and west of the country is amazing. Our Malagasy guide, Daisy, is fantastic, as is Andy the Operation Wallacea rep.
Currently we are at Nofy in beach bungalows and any weight loss due to jungle hiking and a diet of beans and rice will soon be lost as each meal is three courses.
The students have been great and the stark changes in the county side have alleviated any of the pain in the travel. Today will bring a couple of jungle walks that promise to be very different to the last week.
We are about to head to the rain forest and low and behold it is raining!
Very different from the dry forests of the west.
9 students, 2 teachers and the land of biodiversity.
