Photographer's Note

Dans les rues de Tamatave, les fleurs poussent dans le sable.
Souvent il pleut.
Ou bien il fait trop chaud.
Alors on a réinventé les transports modernes.
Ceux qui ne polluent pas et qui ne coûtent pas cher.
Ceux qui se moquent des fluctuations du baril.
Ceux qui vont là où on souhaite.
Sans broncher.
Quel que soit le temps.

Les pousse-pousses de Tamatave sont loués à la journée pour 5000 Ariari par les pauvres.
Chaque course peut rapporter 500 à 1000 Ariari, mais la concurence est grande et les voyageurs peu nombreux.

****

In the streets of Tamatave, the flowers push in sand. Often it rains.
Or the weather is too hot.
Then modern transport was reinvented.
Those which do not pollute and which are not expensive.
Those which doesn't care with the fluctuations of the barrel.
Those which go where one wishes.
Without stumbling.
Whatever the weather.

The rickshaws of Tamatave are rented at the day for 5000 Ariari by the poor.
Each race can bring back 500 to 1000 Ariari, but competition is large and the travellers very few
