Lauren's Mauritius Journal

Ahhh Mauritius... What a lovely place.  White sand, transparent blue water and equally blue cloudless skies.  I will only briefly mention that we were in  the flight path of the airport.  That meant that about 12 jets or planes flew over our peaceful resort every day.  Well, that aside, we had a fun time.  We went snorkeling, scuba diving and we even drove to the other side of the island.  Did you know that it takes 1 hour to cross the entire nation?  Yeah, it's that small.  When we were out snorkeling, I asked the boat man what Mauritius meant in the local dialect.  He told me that it was named after General Maurice, the French founder of the island.  Well, I had a lovely time in Ile de Maurice and I really I can go back some day.
