Tanindrazana cycle I - "Reniala", the mother of forest

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

"Reniala", the mother of forest

Tanindrazana means in Malagasy "the land of ancestors". The word hides in itself a deep respect and special feelings, that the people of Madagascar has for its island and predecessors. This mini-cycle is a reminiscence of the time I have spent on Madagascar in 2009 and a humble "thanks" to all of my friends there.

Tanindrazana znamená malgašsky "země předků" a ukrývá v sobě hluboký respekt a city, který obyvatelé Madagaskaru mají pro svůj ostrov a své předchůdce. Tento mini-cyklus je vzpomínka na můj pobyt na Madagaskaru v roce 2009 a malé poděkování všem mým tamějším přátelům.

Misaotra betsaka

This picture is dedicated specially to my friend indri, for permitting me to follow her numerous exquisite travels around Madagascar through her Panoramio gallery and for all her travel stories
