Mauritius | March 11, 2018
First off, I woke up and packed a few things for the day. Soon we caught a bus where I saw lots of my friends. My tutor offered to share a kayak with me since the kayaks were doubles. We saw tons upon tons of beautiful land and learned that school, health, and education are all free in Mauritius. That means that going to the doctor, getting shots, having surgery, going to school and learning doesn’t cost a penny in Mauritius. But you have to pay to go to university. I also learned people know French and English in Mauritius. When we got to the beach we got paired up and went to an island where we saw Mangroves everywhere! We learned about some Mauritian history such as there’s a dormant volcano right in the middle of Mauritius. As we kayaked we went through a small trail of Mangroves, which is essentially a natural fort. As we went to our lunch spot we saw 2 white birds with really long tales the guide said there was at one point less then 200 in the world. The guide also switched to talking about a special bird called the Pink Pigeon. One really interesting thing is Mauritius is on tectonic plates and moves one centimeter toward Africa every year! 41×1=41, 41 centimeters is approximately 1 foot and 11 centimeters.
Fun Fact: There are no snakes on Mauritius.
