erkhyan: My fursona (Default)
The lack of knowledge of Malagasy people about prominent features of their own landscape amazes me:
  • Humpback-shaped mountain south of Arivonimamo, so tall it is visible from 30 miles around despite the hilly, rugged terrain: nobody can tell me the thing's name. (All I know is that it's one of the foothills of the Ankaratra massif, with a tremendous topographic prominence on its eastern side)

  • Apparent fault system starts on the eastern side of the island's northern tip, runs between the Montagne d'Ambre and the Tsaratanana massifs, joins the northwestern coast, then digs a huge gash on the northwestern plateau between the Ampasindava peninsula and the Bongolava hills: nobody can tell me what it really is, either. (see this picture; the feature I'm talking about appears as a green gash on the elevation map, that runs roughly parallel to most of the northwestern coast - heck, the thing is even visible on the vegetation maps and some satellite images!)
