Flag of Mauritius  ,
Monday, June 14, 2010

Mauritous gave us a great welcome.  Sights we visited were a factory making model boats.  These were not the standard ship in a bottle and it is anybody's  guess how to take one back with you - hardly fit a suitcase and getting them through quarantine into Australia would be a nightmare.  So we just admired them.

Next we visited an extinct volcano with the crator full of water moving on to a temple on a lake with large statues.   By this time we had travelled north across the island on the only large road.

We travelled to a waterfall for lunch at a restaurant nearby.  Here we saw the coloured sands and a pen full of giant tortoise.  These were over 90 years old and produced a demonstration to two  Australian ladies trying to refresh their minds and seemed to be taking notes
