Day 3: Antananarivo -Antsirabe

Transfer along the national road to the village of Antanifotsy by car. On the way we visit an

aluminum pot making factory in Ambatolampy. From Antanifotsy, we ride on the bicycle to continue our journey. Sometimes, the local bike enthusiasts wave to us. At the beginning of our bicycle journey, we drive on a track with fruit trees and rice fields at the edge. After crossing the track, we will be on the national highway number 7 to reach Antsirabe. Because of its position in the highlands, Antsirabe, 4500ft. above sea level, during its French rule was also a favorite recuperation site.
