Day 1.

On the 4th of December 2011, a clump of straws appeared in a plant next to my window. From past experience, I knew that this was in fact a nest being built.
The last time this happened on my Christmas tree, the birds laid their eggs but then abandoned the nest. This time, I was determined to not let this happen & so all the neighbour’s cats were chased off & no tampering was done with the nest!

Merry Christmas!

No pié sapin this time because it’s currently occupied (yes, again!).

Cocktail de fruits (explosif!)


This is not a Photoshop, but a juice box which I found, second/minutes/days away from exploding!

Golden Tortoise Beetle


Found this tiny beetle yesterday in a bucket of water. It caught my eye because it had something like a transparent shell on top of that gold coloured body.

Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire


At 828m, the highest point in Mauritius - the Black River Peak, most commonly known as Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire. This photo was taken last year when I had gone for a hike with fellow bloggers down the Black River Gorges. At that time, I had decided that one day I would definitely climb that mountain.

Well, that day has finally arrived. After having earlier savoured the views from Cascade 500 pieds, we were now on our way to conquer the highest peak in Mauritius.
