Oh yes, a fantastic map card! And you know just how much I love to brag with these :D
One of the numerous great surprises from Sissel.
I had this map card on my wishlist for a longish time and now I have it in my collection!
I think that the winning combination here that captured me is the deep-blue ocean colour...being my favourite colour, blue on cards often contributes for me liking them a lot....and if any of you here is well-acquainted with the personality stuff (like, since blue is my favourite, what does it say about me) feel free to give me an insight into it...just curious :)
The card also has a number of small pictures depicting some of the paradise-places in Mauritius.
Some of the interesting facts about this country are that the majority of the estimated 1,300,000 people are Indian, but there are also many people of African descent on the island. There are also European and Chinese minorities. It is the only African nation where the majority religion is Hinduism although Christianity and Islam also have significant populations.
This island is also renowned for having been the only known home of the dodo.
If anyone has a postcard with the dodo, I would be really happy to accommodate it in my collection!
