Oct. 24 at Champs de Mars for horse racing

From Grand Baie we hopped on the local bus for a day at the races – Champs de Mars near downtown Port Louis  This is the second oldest horse racing course in the world and Mauritians are serious about racing.  Men and women are stylishly dressed even in the heat of the day.

We had made arrangements with Lalah (who works for guest services) who showed us to our boxed seats, made sure we had refreshments and gave us a brief tour including meeting the General Manager, Benoit Halbwachs.  It was thrilling to watch.
