Photographer's Note

A view across Antananarivo ('Tana') - Madagascar's chaotic but likeable capital city, situated in the highlands in the centre of the island. The picture is taken from near the Rova (Queen's Palace) and the Palais du Prime Ministre.

In the centre of the picture is Lac Anosy, an artifical lake. The angel in the centre was built to commerate Madagascar's part in the First World War.

In the foreground is the stadium, where a riot broke out the day I went down to the lake. The football fans had paid for their tickets, only to have the match cancelled, so they proceeded to break chairs and burn cars.

Also note the rice fields in the distance, which surround the city and are ubiquitous in the highlands.
