also, the new government has finally prooven that they are going to fulfill all the pre-election promises. they have begun implementing on the free transport for students and senior citizens plan. so from the 1st of Sept all University of Mauritius students (and other students as well throughout mauritius) need not pay any money to get to the uni (or their school) and back home. hurray. though one thing does nag me. how on earth is the government going to generate and afford the Rs 600 Million per year cost of this "free transport" without any functional economic sector ? any ideas? i guess that these guys in mauritius are going to need all the ideas that we can give them.
so coming back to today, i guess that the only major highlight that is worth mentioning is that i got to eat the dholl puri's from the guy who comes out near James's shop. he is no doubt my favourite dholl puri guy in all of mauritius. and i guess that it does help that i am a regular customer. so of course i get preferential treatment (i.e. extra stuffing in my dholl puris...mmm).
all right then, i have to get going. have a bit of reading that needs to be done for the classes tomorrow. gotta be ready. i am in the third year now.
i will try and update my blog regularly. just keep in touch folks. it is a real pleasure reading all your comments.
ps: gordon are you dead? i tried calling you on saturday. just know that i have not dissappeared like some people tend to do. i am very much here. the last week i spent staying at home getting used to being home and reading. see ya around bru.
and yeah mitty, have fun in australia...give andy a big slap on the back from me. get wasted in the land down under and make sweet love to the kangaroos and koalas.
;D (don't forget the pictures).
