No time for sketching today….exploring Mauritius capital city – Port Louis on the North West coast (not enough time, too hot, too many things to see
Fascinating local markets just across the main road from the waterfront. Wonderful fresh fruit, veggies and spices on the ground floor, t-shirts and tourist trinkets on the second floor, local cheap clothing on the top floor (escalators may or may not be working)! Lots of vendors shouting the wonders and pricing of their wares in Creole….hot, humid, sweaty and alive! The colours and smells were intense, I loved it.
Just across from the main market are the butchery halls (if you are vegan or vegetarian give these a miss!) Two sheds, one for beef and goat, the other for poultry and poisson (fish), all parts of the creature for sale, courtesy of cleaver wielding butchers.
