Sakamanga or the Blue Cat

Back in Tana after 7 days in the field. Sitting at the beautifully carved wooden bar of the Sakamanga, contemplating whether I'm going to have a ginger, coconut, pineapple, banana, lychee, vanilla or raisin rhum. Maybe it's more reasonable to have a simple "planteur" (punch) in order to make it back to my room later.

The place is packed as always, people having drinks at the bar waiting to be seated for dinner. The vibe is good, the atmosphere cozy, the music groovy - think Malagasy remix of Cantaloop. The walls are covered with black & white photographs from all over the country and wooden carvings. And the food.... DIVINE!!! Not only because I've been on the road eating rice, rice and rice for the past week. But I'm not back to write about food... I've just spent a truly exhausting, but amazing week on the road. Now, I just have to figure out where to start.
