I have never been in Madagascar. I listened to many stories, looked at pictures, but the road never lead me to that island. When I planned the Tiki trip Madagascar was on top of the list. This time, I simply could not miss that destination. And now I'm ready to go to the strange island.
Rested, I am leaving Istanbul, the city which I always leave different, but I don’t have a lot of time for settling impressions. A long and hard journey awaits me. I'm going south, along the coast of Turkey and then I come to Cyprus and from there to the coast of Lebanon and Israel. I enter the waters of Egypt, and soon I arrive to the Suez Canal. Again I have to "push" among large ships, provided that this time I am so passing the entire 163 kilometers. I'm making a little longer break on the coast of the Great Bitter Lake in order to preserve the little remaining concentration to pass through the southern part of the Canal. After a lot of trouble I come to the city after which the Canal is named. I enter into the Red Sea. While going south I am watching the coast of Egypt, Eritrea and small Djibouti. This is where I leave the Red Sea and enter the Gulf of Aden. The way further leads me along the coast of Somalia and Kenya, then Tanzania and Mozambique. I am sailing a few hundred kilometers more in the open sea, my favorite discipline, and arrive in a wonderful land.

Endemic species are not uncommon, but the rule in
