This book is an invitation to stroll around Mauritius, along its beaches, its sugarcane fields, its crowded towns and sleepy little villages. The fine contours of our lagoons, the architectural hodgepodge of our towns and the gleam of light on the large trees lining our roads: while it is all illustrated with great sensitivity in the wonderful sketches and watercolors of the artist Florent Beusse and described with nostalgia by the writer Amal Sewtohul, it will be up to the reader to imagine the rest – the taste of the cinnamon tea in a small village bar, the frenzied birdsong among the tall trees at sunset, and above all, the surprising discovery that over and across the Trou aux Cerfs, under winter’s chilly drizzle, lie the Trois Mamelles and the sun drenched sea.
