Pearls inside? Nay!

Minimal means gorgeous!

The magnificent Chateau Bel Ombre… quintessentially the most luxurious experience I have ever had in my entire travel history!

A florid sunset sky engulfed all my senses on that day. Sunsets in Mauritius are spectacular. You can watch a sunset from the gardens surrounding Bel Ombre Chateau and proceed for dinner reservation afterwards.

The French Chateau that can be reserved fora stay for just the two of you!

When Zucchini doubles as fish scale, you know you have reached the play field of an excellent chef!

I have said this many times and I will say this again! Mauritius has little India imprinted in her hearts and it manifests beautifully at every nook and corner of the streets.

An ancient French chateau which is built from a ship wreck. Look up for the ceiling and you will find it is basically an inverted ship deck. How cool is that!

Litchi trees of Mauritius are laden with ripe fruits! I found them being fermented in delicious Litchi wine apart from being sold in abundance at the Central Market, port Louis. Perks of living a tropical island life!

I see turnips. My heart is filled with joy.

Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history; such is the history of civilization for thousands of years.

A cute sushi boat we feasted on during our stay at the Ravenala Resort.

The steam engine used to dry the tea. Mauritius does not have a rail route, the only thing missing from her Indianness!

50 shades of greens at the Bois Cheri tea mill!

In memory of the tea plantation workers…

Forever obsessed with ecological lights!

Many flavors of rum from the heart of Mauritius. The sugar plantation fields you have driven past swiftly actually yield this!

The Bali bags made their way from far off South China Sea!
