Getting up before dawn is worth it in Itampolo on the remote southern coast of Madagascar. The semi nomadic Vezo fishing community are preparing for the days fishing or returning from a trip, the women are frying fish to take to a local market the girls walk the beach hoping the boys they have their eye on will help them carry their bowls of washing. The dug out pirogues of the east coast are replace here by plank built pirogues with outriggers to make them more stable and skilled boat builders work on them on the beach. *Just a note to say all photos taken with the permission of the subjects who often ask for a photo and find their image hilarious. #madagascartravel #madagascarroadtrip #ecotourism #responsibletravel #mirembytours
