I figured we could use a little trip through the joys of Mauritius here, especially since I was just there 3 weeks ago. This was the trip where my camera ate my card so it is a miracle I even got these back from it. Not great quality, but they give a decent feel for the island. And you can watch 24 hours condensed into 5 minutes here: The trip was actually a lot of fun, with the exception of the folks at SAA extorting an extra $305 from me at the airport to fly. The hotels on the island seem to be mostly resort deals which I'm not a huge fan of but it got the job done for us. And having a car to explore on our own made a HUGE difference. Well worth the investment (~$100a/i including petrol for the day).
