Our memories once again wander to beautiful Mauritius with its lush foliage and beautiful coast line. There is a gorgeous waterfall in the Chamarel village, by many considered the most beautiful waterfall on the island. Three distinct streams plunge 83 metres down into the gorge. A beautiful place to stop by. Few steps away the “seven-coloured earth” of Chamarel, a geological curiosity, beacons. It is a small area of a mini-desert located within a large, dense forest. The earth is created by volcanic lava that cooled at different temperatures and at different rates, creating rocks of various chemical patterns and colours. The rocks were then pulverized into sands with various shades of red, brown, grey, yellow, and purple.Rains had carved beautiful patterns of many colours into the hillside. It is said that sands of Chamarel have the amazing property of settling into distinct layers: if you take a handful of each of the seven different colours of dirt and mix them together, they’d eventually separate into a colourful spectrum, each dot of sand rejoining its colour caste.
The breezy Plaza de San Francisco was one of our favourite places in Havana. We often rested at its white marble fountain of lions (Fuente de los Leones), observing a beautiful spectacle with pigeons performing for tourists. They were trained by an old Cuban lady not only to eat from visitors´ hands or heads (and behaved themselves they did!) but also on her sign to simultanously jump up to the air and fly in circles around the fountain until they were told to land and discreetly reinforced. We saw it dozens of times and each time it was pure magic!!! People gasped and laughed, and we couldn’t help but smile. I have no idea why we never tried to record it…
