Down through the camphor trees a small lake came into view with purple and yellow water lilies - 2 female workers were tidying and gathering leaves, we passed the time of day and then sadly had to leave.

However, the Institute for Shipboard Education managed to pull some strings and have the ship spend the night and then clear customs at 6am. They would let us off the ship the following day from 8am-12pm. 4 hours in Mauritius!! How fun! The pool deck erupted in applause.
