My days at this African island nation just keeps getting better and I am planning on making a long trip or let us say – stay out of it. My new found friend here Kaviraj and I had been getting close and he was quite a philosopher I noted as he guided me around. I let on that “ I am also a poet apart from being an actor in Bollywood and you should go to my Facebook page.” I continued further, ” I have written a poem called I am in love but I can’t get it up .” Kavi laughed heartily at the title of my poem and I must say that it was indeed a great poem – even if no one but I thought so.
We drove down to the Alexandra Falls right in the midst of what seemed to be a field. It was breathtaking in it’s natural beauty and I was awestruck to say the least. I trekked down and swam right to the mouth of the fall navigating the slippery slope was an exercise and well not saying much but I cannot yet include myself among the fittest. I was panting and gasping for breath.
I jumped into the icy cold water and swam right to the tip where the water was falling as Kaviraj clicked away with my Camera. I loved the exercise and the swim had done wonders for me. As I climbed back to our car, we had driven what seemed right to the mouth I felt amazed. There was fresh coconut juice and a pineapple waiting for me , I munched away at this rare treat .
Next stop was Chamarel Terres Des 7 Couleurs, an exotic place and an interesting geological formation and are sand dunes of seven different colours. I saw Red ,Brown , White and this is in the found in the Chamarel plain of the Rivière Noire District.
I had already spent five days in this country but I realized that I was yet to taste a full course Authentic Mauritian cuisine. Kavi came to my rescue again we stopped at the Palasis De Barbizon where I had a hearty lunch of Chicken , Fish , Vegetables of three different varieties of Dal and pickle with some orange punch.
At the end of the meal I heard the radio turned on and a hit Bollywood number from the film Dhoom was playing “ Dhoom Machale Dhoom Machale Dhoom.”. I got up and instantly started dancing to the tune of the music as if on cue the cook and the waitress and even Kavi joined the party and in a few minutes the whole restaurant was cheering us and clapping for us to go on. That was quite something and I guess the performer in me was just letting go!
Mahébourg is a sleepy fishing village and I enjoyed the calmness and serenity of the place I have decided to extend my stay at the Coca Villa for seven more days. This will be my base and I plan to take in this Island Nation of Africa making this my hub!
I had really wanted to do this again since Male and the Andamans and Kavi has booked me for a three day Scuba Diving Session and I was looking forward to the deep dive at the Scuba Doo Diving Club new Port Louis, the Capital City. It is on the famous Troux aux Biches – winner of the world leading beach destination of 2011! I am really looking forward to that dive!
