    Hi Chris

    I’m heading to Madagascar in August – and happened to read your article in Canoe Focus. Sounds wicked.

    If you have any more detailed info or suggestions left over from your trip, it would be great to hear from you. I’ve made contact with Gilles who’s already being really helpful.

    I’ll try to contact the Poly as well, but if you happen to hear of any other paddlers who’ll be there in august please could put us in touch.

    thanks
    Steve
