"Merina live on the hauts plateaux, the most developed area of the country, the capital being 95% Merina. They are of Malayo-Polynesian origin and vary widely in skin colour, with straight hair. Most Merina houses are built of brick or mud; some are two-storey buildings with slender pillars, where the people live mainly upstairs. Th ere is much irrigated rice cultivation, and the Merina were the first tribe to have any skill in architecture." Madagascar: the Bradt Guide; www.bradtguides.com
