Where in the World are the Margolins? travel blog

Mauritius is a small island located a few hundred miles east of Zanzibar. It has colonial history with both the United Kingdom and France. The island has been self-governed since the late 1960's. Not a huge amount to write about the island. We had two days here and spent them entirely at the hotel and on the beach. Our taxi driver was very chatty and we began discussing the religious makeup of the island. Mauritius is predominantly Hindu. Deepavali, a ceremony of lights was taking place. This (from my understanding) leads the Hindus into their new year. We had a quick two days. If anyone is in the neighborhood it is definitely worth a few days or a week
