Kids hamg out on the Ravorona family crypt. One of the founding families of Ambohibary, the name means 'bird' because the original Ravorona could get to Antananarivo and back before a pot of water could boil (it took us three hours one way by car). Incidentally this crypt cannot be opened unless those doing so are high. Doesn't matter if it's a funeral or a Famadihana. The local gendarmes turn a blind eye for a day so the the tradition can be respected.
