This is what Independence Day looks like in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. Colorful paper lanterns everywhere, and fireworks are being sold at road-side vendors.

We had our own little paper lantern parade in the dark. The kids looked forward to this night, with fond memories of their last Independence day in Madagascar two years ago.  :) Fun.

Madagascar was a former French colony, and became an independent country in 1960.
