Last year, I had an opportunity to visit Mauritius by sea. We travelled in a big ship. There were other smaller ships going alongside. The whole fleet was in formation.

I formed a useful friendship with one of the fellow passengers.We enjoyed the journey very much. Neither he nor I was in a hurry to reach Mauritius.
