... modern section is being built at the Airport, quite modern and impressive. Immigration took a while. Life is at a slower pace here. I changed dollars in Mauritius rupees (with no commission or extra fees), read about 50 little signs from people picking-up passengers, didn’t find my name (even though some insisted I needed to follow them) went beyond the crowd of avid greeters (often taxi drivers!) and saw Jocelyn Prodigue, one of our faithful members in the ...
