Wow. I had no idea. No indigenous population at all?

What a great post. I've long wondered (idly) about Mauritius.


Just an awesome post. Drew me right in and didn't disappoint.

I love the way, as a travel writer, you present what you find to be mysterious, and you don't try to research it to death. I'm left wanting to visit -- to experience the mystery -- or at least to dream well tonight.


Thanks Jarret, great post, lovely text and pictures and I'm with Peter, it's one of the gems that leaves you wanting

I'd not wondered about Mauritius till a link from Slow Reads led me here. I especially enjoyed your visual commentary on the street signs and language issues.
