Day 2: Ready to Go!

After a good night's sleep, we were ready to go! Christian and Sheila played tour guide for us all week. We started with a grand tour of the island.

Frédéric started by learning how to drive on the right side of the car, and the left side of the road. We won't tell you how many times I accidentally tried to get into the driver's seat during the week.

Mauritius has a large Hindu population, so there are a lot of Hindu temples around.

We stopped at a few lookout points for photos.

At one of them, we stopped for some fresh coconut, too.

The scenery in Mauritius is fabulous. Fields of sugar cane, mountains, ocean....

We went to another beach where we had lunch, and then went out on a glass-bottomed boat. The guide told us all about the different types of coral, and the fish that live in the coral reef.

Then the kids went snorkeling with the fish!

After the snorkeling, the guide dropped us off on another island, where we played in the water or walked around until he came back for us later.
