Beautiful Tana at night

On Sunday evening I ventured into town with a group of friends for supper at a swanky place overlooking Lac Anosy. We left straight from church and rushed in, with the sun fading fast. But, with my brilliant rally-like driving we made it in time and had a wonderful evening together – the golden hues ever-changing, fading to darkness, leaving us to enjoy the city’s twinkling lights below and a splash of stars above. Braving the cool winter night, we even took a detour after supper to shoot the Ambohipotsy Church at the end of the road. It is one of four churches built by English missionaries to honour the first Malagasy martyrs in the 1800s and looked amazing under the stars, with our cell phone torches lighting its facade.

Antananarivo can come across as a bit dirty, run-down, smelly and very-last-century, but on this evening she showed us her best side!
