Madagascar. – The day had come for me to leave the Palmarium Hotel and head back to Antananarivo, from there an overnight and home. I wasn’t ready. I needed to savour every last moment in this special place in the hope of slowing down time. Waking at 5am to catch the sunrise, I walked down the steps from my bungalow to the water’s edge, breathed in the tranquil mood of the lake and thought about all I had learnt during my short visit here. I need more, I want more. And with feet in gently lapping water, I promised the earth and the water and myself – that I would return.
