::: Bye Bye Mauritius :::
ティタンの家族がプレザンス空港まで見送りにきてくれました。
スワンとまた会おうね!と約束をし、帰路へ。
Titane's family took me to the Plaisance Airport to see me off.
I was so sad and I promised Swan that I will see her again.

::: Bois Cheri Tea Factory :::
念願のボワシェリ紅茶工場に行ってきたのです!
これがボワシェリ入り口!入場料は300ルピー(1200円)。
I was longing for this factory visit.
We went to see Bois Cheri Tea Factory today.
The entrance fee is Rps 300 per person.

b0038810_17555055.jpg


見学は入り口すぐ右側にある紅茶博物館から開始。
We started browsing the tea museum on the right hand side of the entrance.

これはお茶の葉っぱ。
This is field of tea.

b0038810_17574216.jpg

日本茶も紅茶も同じお茶の葉を使うのです!
プロセスの違いで違うお茶になるそうです。
Every teas from the same tea leaves.
English tea, Japanese tea, or Chinese tea, it is all depending on how they process the tea leaves.

見学後は眺めのいい茶畑の丘の上で紅茶の試飲。
After factory visit, we went to have tea tasting.

その後、セントオーバンのラム酒工場へ!
サトウキビが特産のモーリシャスでは、そのサトウキビを使ったラム酒が有名なのです。
中でもバニラのフレーバーの付いたラム酒はオススメ。
After Bois Cheri, we visited St Aubin Rhum factory.
It's famous to have nice rhum from sugar cane in Mauritius.
I strongly reccomend vanila flavor rhum!

::: Domaine du Chasseur's alfresco :::
ジョナサンが前々からオススメといっていたレストランにバイクでアフタヌーンティーをしに出かけてきました。
Jonathon took me on his motor bike to his favorite restaurant for afternoon tea this afternoon.

ここはDomaine du Chasseur's alfresco Panoramour Restaurantというところ。
駐車場で車を置き、頂上の展望レストランまでは専用のタクシーにて移動(一人600ルピー:約240円ほど)。
This place is called "Domaine du Chasseur's alfresco Panoramour Restaurant."
We park the motor bike and change to their taxi which costs Rps 600 per person to go to the restaurant on the top of the mountain.

有料のタクシーということで、快適な車を創造していたのに、4WDトラックの荷台にシートがついているものが登場。
ヘアピンカーブをお尻が痛くなるほどのすごいスピードで揺られながら進む。
I was expected nice taxi to go there but hey, this is Mauritius. Anything can happen. This 4WD truck came with a pair of flat seats on the back of the truck. They said this is a taxi!!!
We got on the taxi? and went through pebbly hair-pin like winding road
My bottom got hurt...

b0038810_17394746.jpg

ついたのは最高の眺めのレストラン。
When we got to the top, we could see the view and the restaurant.

コーヒーは景色とは反対でかなりオススメできませんが。。。
Their coffee was terrible but this is worth going to see the view!
Amazing.

::: Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve :::
I went to a guided tour to Ile aux Aigrettes nature Reserve island by myself.

I walked to the Pointe D'esney jetty where the boat takes off.
This is the island I am going to see.

This is today's tour guide Michelle.

I waited 30 minutes until other group comes and took off.
I am on the boat to go to the island.

b0038810_15283247.jpg


After 5 minutes, we arrived the island.

Tour guide took us around the island for 1.5 hours but very slow mauritian pace and looked many things.
First of all, little Geckos!

I learned that lots of animals extinct from introduced predetors like cats, dogs, rats and humans.

On the way home I met this fisherman just finished fishing.
He said good fish today.

This is the bus stop.

b0038810_15443977.jpg

Well not really bus stop at the end.
Because if you wave at the bus, they stop for you.
When you ring the bell, they stop anywhere for you :)
Great system. In front of your house can be your busstop.

::: Black River Gorges National Park :::
Jonathon took a motorbike to take me to a day tour today.
First we stopped Plesanse International Airport.
We had a look at massive Air France jet taking off.

b0038810_0462750.jpg

We stopped at a nice little cafe for morning coffee.

b0038810_0474630.jpg
b0038810_0482536.jpg

Then took off to Rochester Fall following this little hand written sign on a dirt road.

b0038810_050764.jpg

Here we are, we got to the Rochester Fall.
This tour guid guy who start guiding us without asking us finally asked money for a giude.

b0038810_1504596.jpg

Even this guy jumped off who asked money for showing how to jump.
Well it wasn't working for Jonathon and I.
We were happy to give money for the tour guide, but not to the jump off guy...well good try.

b0038810_1521059.jpg


After the Rochester fall, we head off to the "Riviere des Galets."
This is the beach that you see only pebbles and rocks.
The sound at the beach is amazing cracking sound you hear every time wave comes.

b0038810_159564.jpg
b0038810_1510538.jpg


We went for a winding road and that was fun to be the back of Jonathon's motorbike. Soooo nice to feel the wind and feel that I was within the nature.
Finally we arrived the Black River Gorges.
