Flag of Mauritius  ,
Monday, May 22, 2006

It did not take us very long to settle into the rhythm of life in Trou d'Eau Douce. Translated literally, the name of the village means "sweet water hole". It is where the river meets the ocean; the fresh water meets the salt water. The spot is actually about 200 meters from our house. Local women gather there everyday to do laundry on the rocks. We like Trou d'Eau Douce because it has maintained the charm of the old Mauritius. Life is very relaxed here, the people are friendly, traffic is light and there is always a party after sunset.

As for us, we love it here. We are getting to know the people and the village fairly well. We even pay the local rate for a cab, not the tourist rate which is often up to 10 times the price. To know what we have been up to, check our the accompanying album and the descriptions for each photo.
