Mauritius (pronounced Mar-ish-us). A small island country off the east coast of Africa. This rich island seems comparable to a Caribbean island getaway... except a large amount of the locals in Mauritius are of Indian descent with either a Hindu or Islamic background and so the food served at restaurants often follow the rules of these religions. Cool! This map shows some popular tourist attractions. Hopefully I can use this one day.

African Art* I thought this artist beautiful work could best represent the face of real life African(American) Edward Mozingo-An Angolan Warrior captured during the Portuguese-Angolan Colonial Wars (14th-20th). Edward Mozingo became one, if not the first, African indenture in Colonial English America to fight in court for his freedom, and win. His descendants are of multi-ethnic backgrounds. * art not a rendering of Edward Mozingo
