Monument to any fighters at Royal College
Monument to any fighters with something at Royal College. Was too lazy to approach more close, to read that it is written on a monument... In general, the history Mauritius was, in general bloodless. Well, small skirmishes at transition from Frenchmen to Englishmen.

Self-made car number
Attention to passing «bucket»: a car number — self-made! And it is an ordinary theme on Mauritius. About such self-made car numbers there will be a separate post.

Street index
At last, the index of the name of street (near to a cathedral of St. Theresa). The majority of indexes on Mauritius the self-made. This — a rare exception.

So, I have run all over the basic sights of centre Curepipe, photo have planed. The city is unequivocally recommended to visiting.

Yes, in Curepipe, among other things there is an embassy of the Russian Federation on Mauritius (the address: Queen Mary Avenue, Floreal). And still there is an old extinct volcano (french: Trou Aux Cerfs Volcano), and the embassy settles down nearby, at bottom.
