Madagascar – First glimpse of Antananarivo as I walked from the Hotel to the Analakely market. The city is build on seven hills and interlinked by stairways between the streets. I was advised by the hotel not to take the stairs in the evening, as Tana is know to have a problem with pick pockets and petty criminals, but I ignored their advise opting to leave all valuable in the Hotel room, walk them there and back, stopping to savour the moment and photograph. The burnt orange walls caught the light while the market vendors closed up shop after a long day. Locals lingered for relaxed chats and I stood out in a world where near all activities are focussed on locals, where a visitor like myself captures voyeuristic memories. And I did.
