"A Travellers Tree growing in a boat floats along the Pangalanes Canal, past the graveyard for the mostly Chinese labourers who built the waterway. Past old French colonial villas now roofless and full of trees. Past a vast red bridge and the Manakara town sign bedecked in Madagascar’s national colours. The Travellers Tree is the country’s national symbol and its voyage upstream is a symbol of Madagascar gaining more international attention."
