23-Nov-2007 -- Ma première confluence dans l'hémisphère sud. Elle se trouve sur l'eau. On dirait qu'elle est facile comparé avec les autres dont la plupart sont cachées dans des collines ou montagnes difficilement accessible à cause des mauvaises routes.

S'approchant du point la mer devenait plus en plus agitée. On était tout trempé. C'est la raison pourquoi il y a des images du début du voyage à Maroantsetra, mais aucun de notre arrivée à Mananara.

English version

23-Nov-2007 -- My first confluence in the southern hemisphere. It is on the water. One might think that's an easy one compared with the others mainly hidden between hills or mountains and difficult accessible because of bad roads.

Reaching the mouth of the bay, the sea got quite rough and rocked our nutshell: We got all wet. That is the reason why there are pictures from the start of our trip in Maroantsetra but no pictures from when we reached Mananara.
