Today began early as we piled into two vans to see the sights of the island nation of Mauritius. For hours on end, our local guides fascinated us with amazing sights and experiences unique to Mauritius. There were many waterfalls, tea plantations, huge tortoises, sugar cane, a model boat factory, and even seven colored dirt! The day was broken by lunch at a local restaurant before proceeding to several scenic view points to finish the afternoon. Everyone ended the day tired and excited by the prospect of more exploration in coming days.
