achieved international exposure on a major label (Record label). This compilation, however, showcases "traditional" ''tsapika'', such as might have more commonly been performed in rural villages twenty years ago, rather than the amplified, synthesized and remixed style in heavy rotation on radio stations performed by national stars like Tirike, Jarifa, and Mamy Gotso. '''Toliara''' (formerly '''Toliary''' or '''Tuléar''') is a former province (provinces of Madagascar) of Madagascar with an area of 161,405 km². It had a population of 2,229,550 (July, 2001). Its capital was Toliara. Near Toliara is the "spiny forest (Madagascar spiny thickets)". The name ''tsavorite'' was proposed by Tiffany and Co president Sir Henry Platt in honor of Tsavo National Park in Kenya. Apart from the source locality in Tanzania it is also found in Toliara (Tuléar) Province, Madagascar, but so far, no other occurrences of gem material have been discovered. History The Coton de Tulear developed on the island of Madagascar and is still the island's national dog. The Coton's ancestors were possibly brought to Madagascar in the 16th and 17th centuries aboard pirate ships. Madagascar was a haven for pirates, and pirate graveyards can still be seen there. Pirates established a base on St. Mary's Island, Madagascar and some of them took Malagasy wives. Whether the dogs were brought along to control rats on the ships, as companions for long voyages, or were confiscated from other ships as booty no one knows. Tulear is a port now also known as Toliara. The Coton is of the Bichon dog type, linked most closely to the Bichon Tenerife, and Tenerife Terrier. There have been many stories circulating about the history of the Coton in recent years. Most of them are untrue. The Coton de Tulear was never feral on Madagascar. It did not hunt wild boar or alligators, as its size, strength, and demeanor can disprove easily. It was a companion dog of the Merina (the ruling tribe) in Madagascar. It has very little prey drive, and is not a hunting dog. thumb left Train station (Image:Antsirabe station.jpg) The city is at the end of the TA (Tananarive-Antsirabe) railway, currently only with freight trains.

Dahab

unenthusiastic about the bicycle-rental aspect of their commercial operation, quoting inflated prices and creative time definitions ("1 day" 6 hours). Even large and supposedly reputable operators are not immune from deficiencies in this area. See Do The most "traditional" thing to do in Dahab is not to do anything. It's one of the best places in the world to indulge this most exquisite passion and a lot of Dahab's reputation among travellers is based on that. Anyway, if "doing" something to you means "activity" or "sites" there's also a great variety of options: * Windsurfing * Kite surfing * Scuba diving * Freediving * Desert excursions * Desert Trekking * Rock Climbing * Sandboarding * Yoga, Reiki, Chi Gong, etc. * Horse back riding (& camel riding of course!) * Quad bikes * Learn Arabic Wind-surfing and kite-surfing '''Wind surfing:''' Dahab has about 270 days a year of wind. Experts with their own equipment can also surf from Masbat Bay, but must take great care not to hit the snorkellers and freedivers on Lighthouse Reef. Kite surfing can be done around the lagoona area, at Eel Garden or at other local spots. Recently, some kiters have started heading out to the Laguna at Ras Abu Galoum - stunning location and you will be just 1 or 2 kites rather than 10 or 20! For wind forecast for Dahab see Wind Guru There are several wind surfing schools around Laguna area offering all levels of courses: * commons:دهب
