Jaro's pictures from more rides.....

Just a short ride today out to Pointe aux Sables, which is basically across the bay from Port Louis, the capitol of Mauritius. 

Quite photogenic nonetheless, with a few historic sites in front of a mountainous background....

Glad I brought my camera for the bike ride today - some interesting sights along the way, on a 3.5-hour ride to Nicoliere, Bon Accueil, Lalmatie, St-Julien, Camp Thorel, Esperance, and return by way of Moka & Rose Hill.

It is fairly unusual to see the sugarcane fields ploughed like this....

There was some sort of popular event happening at Camp Thorel - no idea what the occasion was, but it looked a lot like our Halloween.

I find that usually the worst pavement is on sections going through towns, and then it gets better once you get out of town.

Roads are fairly narrow, and on top of that the sugar cane plants encroach on the side of the road, making it even narrower.
