The next morning, the view from my window looked something like this...
A typical African scene.
I was on the shores of Lake Itasy, which is rumoured to have crocodiles in it, but this was the closest I got to seeing one
A photo in the hotel reception.
I headed off to find some local waterfalls, and was directed along a small track which got increasingly narrow and full of fesh fesh
I had assumed I was on the route that the bush taxis take, but there's no way that anything with four wheels used this track - and I'm sorry but I was having such a hard time riding that I didn't take any pictures at this stage. I had a couple of river crossings and then I was told I was heading the wrong way and had to go back again!
I found more people AND a proper bridge, I MUST be on the right track now
I finally got to the waterfalls, very dusty and sweaty
but still able to smile
It was like being at a smaller version of Victoria Falls, much smaller
I zoomed in with my camera at the white blob at the top to see this
A couple of ducks that looked like they're contemplating diving in!!
And yes, as I turned to go, here were the bush taxis arriving on the good road
I just had to try and follow this road out.
