After some middle India and its searing heat - I was headed to Africa. No, there is no obvious relationship but I had always wanted to head there as I had some roots here. My dear departed father had, after all, made a lot of his fortune among these lands. And so here I was all booked for the exotic island nation of Mauritius with a return ticket through that delightful NASDAQ listed Indian travel portal makemytrip.com for Rs. 40,000 / $ 590 set to put up at a rather exotic property at an exciting Rs. 2000 approximately / $ 30 per night called the Coca Villa. This was situated at the heart of Mahébourg in South Mauritius and a small fishing town near the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.
