    Along the way to Fianarantsoa

    by rosequartzlover1 Written Sep 2, 2012

    Picture..1.After seeing how people built their houses,I have an imagination that the house look like "house tree"... How ?.... I saw that they used material from the soil and just build it in a very natural and simple way.The colour of the house and the soil still look so much the same ,until I can't help thinking that it looks like the house growing up from soil by itself...It's may sound wierd though,but after so many hours on the bus ,some imagination coming up then. ...This house was along Manandona area.
    2-3.When bus stop along the way,children came out to look what's going on.I said hello to them ,they were quite shy.I expected some begging but they were so lovely.They just treid to sell some wood craft.This area was Manandona area ,villages before arriving Ambositra which is "the center of woodcarving center",that's why these villages has same influence of woodcarving as well.
    4.Passing another village around Ambatofitorahana,I saw many children walking in a long row .It's students walking home home after school,leading by some teachers.I noticed that the colour of student uniform is blue shirt,but only some kids wear them,mostly they wear anything they have...From this village ,it's about 100 km.to reach Fianarantsoa.It's a scenic route,I enjoyed this bus ride a lot.I arrived Fiana arond 17.45 .Totally 9 hours ride..din't sleep a bit because enjoy everything around..
