The blog owner trying to be brave climbing a very old and huge tree that most probably was blown down by a cyclone. Look how big the trunk is!
Curepipe Botanical Garden was created in 1870 and nowhere near as large or impressive as the one in Pamplemousses, but it is a nice and quiet spot just a few minutes walk from the cacophony of the town.
Part of the garden.
My beloved bakery not far from the garden... Waiting in vain for it to open - we thought it was closed during lunch time - but got to know it is closed Mondays. I dare say this bakery makes the yummiest cakes on the island! :) ...We have tasted a lot of cakes in different places... :)
