Before coming to the subject relating to the history of the Mauritius-Turkey connections, it is important to know that the Indian Ocean region had been one of the major concerns of the Ottoman rulers since the 16th century.  The Ottoman Empire was motivated by three reasons to mark its naval presence in the remote Indian Ocean despite the fact that there was no direct shipping route connecting the Mediterranean sea with the Indian Ocean – a physical handicap which perdurated until the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869.

Wonderlaine et Joyful sont les chevaux que nous avions repérés la dernière fois. Les 1365m étaient probablement un peu trop courts pour les réelles aptitudes de Wonderlaine.

Wonderlaine et Joyful sont les chevaux que nous avions repérés la dernière fois. Les 1365m étaient probablement un peu trop courts pour les réelles aptitudes de Wonderlaine. Il avait toutefois été servi par l’allure régulière d’Indaba My Children. Il avait attendu les derniers 200m pour se mettre en évidence, mais n’avait pu disputer la victoire. Cependant, il avait conclu plaisamment. Parti prudemment, Joyful était vite parvenu à trouver la corde au milieu du peloton.

“In Western civilisation, more than in any other culture, education has been the prime instrument of social and intellectual change. At the same time it has been the means by which cultural traditions have been transmitted and sustained. Conservation and creativity are two aspects of the same historical process; yet the apparent conflict between these two conceptions of the function of education is still a controversial issue today.” J. Bowen, ‘A History of Western Education, vol. 1: The Ancient World. Orient and Mediterranean, 2000 B.C. - A .D. 1054’ (London: Methuen, 1972), blurb.

In describing the paradisiac beauty of Mauritius, the panorama will remain incomplete if no mention is made of Mon Choisy.  Undoubtedly, it is the favourite beach of many Mauritians and the dream resort for tourists.  With its bay of turquoise water gently washing the balmy white sand, the beach has a unique atmosphere, enhanced by the whispering of the filaos (also known as casuarinas).
