Ancient Renaults and Citreons ply the French colonial streets of the capital and all the major satellite towns. With no public transport or official bus system these small taxi’s often crammed to breaking point ferry people and goods across town and through the suburbs. Much of Antananarivo’s architecture remains from French colonial period. A lone Renault 4 taxi illuminates the streets of Antananarivo. Since a political terrorism scare in March the street’s remain eerily quiet after 9pm. Partly due to a weakly enforced curfew but also due to the rising crime levels and violent crime since the enforcement system began deteriorating.
