Morondava - Pirogue (Madagascar)
A pirogue at the beach of Morondava in western Madagascar. A pirogue is a traditional dugout canoe of the Vezo people. The Vezo are semi-nomadic coastal people that rely entirely on fishing at sea. The past 2000 years they have been navigating the stretch of the Indian Ocean that separates Madagascar from the African continent in their hand-carved pirogues and they still do it nowadays.
