These tall stacks are several hundred year old piles of rocks that have been dug from the sugar cane fields. Will snapped these pictures as we drove to the airport to get Brian. I thought that such piles were common, and that they were found all over the island, but that has changed in recent years. The reason is that such piles of rock now have value, as the harvesting and grinding of coral (for lime and roadbed use) has been made illegal, and the rock piles now have value as sand. Most piles are gone and these (I was told) are left by the airport as a sort of tourist attraction.
DVD palace. And you wonder why the majority of movie theatres in Mauritius are closed?
