A depressing view of some of the old buildings in the capital Port Louis.
Many of these sites could have been restored and saved over the years. However, apart from a few historical sites, many of the old colonial buildings and houses in Mauritius are fast disappearing. A shame that even the authorities have not shown any interest in saving some of these in the heart of Port Louis. Apart from a few heritage militants nobody of influence seems to care.
