Tropical Garden

Mauritius MU-1644 received 07-26-2012

Sent by: tropicalsamuelvivi
From: Mauritius
ID number: MU-1644
Notes: Mauritius is an island nationin the Indian Ocean, 1,200 miles (2,000 km) off the south east coast of Africa.  The total population is over 1.2 million people.  This card shows Jardin de la Compagnie in the city of Port Louis, which is the capital and largest city in the country.  The park was original part of the vegetable garden for the French East India Company.  The average high temperature for Mauritius is between 80.1° F (26.7° C) in July and 88.7° F (31.5° C) in January, so it is quite a warm place.  I prefer cooler temperatures, so don't expect me to move to Mauritius any time soon.  I had previously received two cards from Mauritius as part of a swap, but this is my first (and only, thus far) official Postcrossing card from the country.
