Capital City of The Week: Week 2

Capital City of The Week!

This week, we move east from Hondouras to Madagascar, to ANTANANARIVO!  Antananarivo (formerly Tananarive), is the capital and largest city in Madagascar.  It is also known by its French colonial shorthand form Tana. The larger urban area surrounding the city, known as Antananarivo-Renivohitra ("Antananarivo-Mother Hill" or "Antananarivo-Capital"), is the capital of Analamanga Region. The name roughly translates to "City of the Thousand".


See if you can find the location of this beautiful capital city on a map.
