Haven't seen the movie, but was actually there! We recently took a trip to Madagascar to visit the hospitals, clinics, and doctors. What a beautiful place! Madagascar is a large island off the eastern coast of Africa. It is French speaking as it used to a colony of France in the colonial days.
Antananarivo is the capitol city and built on hill. If you ever watched Amazing Race they had one spot here. The architecture is very French with cobble stone streets, beautiful ornate building, and small markets on every corner. Our Hotel was next a french patisserie and oh the great pastries, bread, and sandwiches. You would think we were is France.The country side is beautiful with terraced fields--they can grow anything here, and it is all organic. Road side stalls
