Visit to the botanical garden continues

Some of the vacoas trees and its fruit.


Roots of a very old tree.


A gazebo in "Grand Bassin".

And this is what caught my eye; an old abandoned house at the outskirt of the garden. Why can't it be restored? It pains me to see old abandoned houses. The island's history vanishes when these houses are pulled down. Isn't it an idea to save them?

We spent 3-4 hours at the garden before we took the bus back to Port Louis. I intended having a look at the shops in the "textile street", but I was not fit for that. Port Louis is always hot and stuffy and today was no exception. I always end up with headache going there due to pollution. We decided to go home, and bought a pizza on our way, to celebrate my birthday - and that was the end of a great day! :)

as always I love all of your photo's of the island, it really lets us that do not live on an island see what it is like in a way.
