Not too far from Beau Vallon, in the hamlet of Riche en Eau, lies a vestige of our colonial past : the ‘Château de Riche en Eau’. By circumstances, I found myself there on March 12 (one of the two days of the year this private property opens its doors to well informed visitors, the other day being Heritage Day).

Mauritius: Tall, black and beautiful
22 Nov 2018

An urge to stroke this piece of glistening jet black varnished wood took me back to the Dutch period.  Back then, the island was replete with ebony trees - although they were very heavy to carry - since their wood is so dense it does not float.
