So the first stop will be in Mauritius, specifically the Four Seasons at Anahita. Its located South of the Seychelles in the I

Live shows in different corners of the capital. There is some kind of general agreement that it has been a success and the organisers are planning ahead for more such events. I agree with that too. It was a nice experience. Atleast now there is a move towards a more modern Mauritius. Of course, as a first, we cann
