Living Vicariously As A Peripatetic Shutterbug

{ More musings from the Cantankerous Old Mule }


The architecture here in Antananarivo, capital to this red island of Madagascar, is wonderfully eclectic. Many of the buildings have a typically Malagasy feel, while some clearly date back to French colonial times. Some even seem quite stark and communist-like. Many of the buildings also look as if they are being held together by duct tape and plenty of prayers.

Here, a handful of buildings shot over the last two days as I scooted or walked about downtown.

      Well, of course. Those are just boring – and if I shot the embassy I’d be arrested…
