Student Photo Gallery: Mauritius

Though we were only in Mauritius for one day, students were quickly able to reach all corners of this tiny country in the middle of the Indian Ocean.  Predominantly French-speaking with a large Hindu and Muslim population, Mauritius has a rich culture with a fascinating history, and is known for its beautiful beaches and waterfalls.  Below are some of the pictures submitted by our shipboard community:
