Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) in Northern Madagascar is a fairly shabby old colonial town. At its best the streets are lined with colorful, crumbly colonial style buildings and it goes downhill from there – abandoned buildings, corrugated shacks on the outskirts of town coated in a layer of red dirt until the next rainy season.
Near the center towards the water there are a number of tourist type restaurants, cafés, bars and a pretty normal looking super market. However the streets somehow don’t fee welcoming to foreign tourists, the same jaded expressions we experienced in Joffreville.
