"This is as a results of colonization"

Yeah, blame colonizators for everything. I wonder who built first railways and paved roads in Africa? Yes, bad "colonizators".

I have been working here for 3 years (I work for the American government) and I can tell you that life is very good here. We have nice houses with swimming pools for no more than $3000/month. We have nanies and cooks for less than $50/month and I pay well above what my friends pay! Malagasy are nice and educated, they work hard and are very honest, which is good compared with the rest of Africa. A few of them are poor but I guess this is in rural areas. In Tana everyone makes good money thanks to the many companies that are based here. Security is good.

Having visited Antananarivo, I resided at one of the Hotels in Tana. By comparison,Madagascar is a very beautiful country with extremely beautiful people.
However, evidently visible, is the alarming poverty on the streets with lots of beautiful children begging for handouts either in money or otherwise. The infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired. This is as a results of colonization.May God bless this country.

The cities of Madagascar are expensive. Only the rural area make Madagascar looks like a very poor country where inhabitant lives under 2 USD per month. But in cities like Antananarivo, the average income of citizens is above 1000 USD per month
