Our travels around Mauritius saw us visit the popular tourist hotspot of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens. Under ominous skies we parked and paid the admission fee only to seek shelter from torrential downpours. Oh! how it rained…soaking body and soul. Our photographic efforts were severely curtailed…the examples below representing most of the shoot - in fact we probably spent longer learning to pronounce the name than we did taking photographs. The deluge eventually forced us into a cafe where we drank coffee and ate lunch before moving on to another part of the island (and another soaking), but that’s another story.
