Just founfd this site, i am contemplating moving my family to mauritius, can you offer some feedback on the place besides the paradise, need primary and secondary schools for the children.

Regards


Might I suggest that you start a new thread, within this forum, you'll be far better served by it.
This is a complex subject, which has many variables, perhaps by starting a new thread it'll be more visible to those that do have kids in school. Bare in mind that schooling varies from government to private, as anywhere else.

This is indeed a important topic and I'll be eager to read the replies.

Best wishes with your endeavours.

Where did you read "leave" in his post leftright? What's your excuse of not misquoting people now, huh?


Does it change the meaning and intention of his post at all, I think not, you're grasping at straws.

A fine example of where dishonesty in business gets you, ruins, rubble and a trashed reputation.

As a visitor to Mauritius I have never found a problem with locals charging a little more for tourists. We can afford it better than most. I liken it to bartering in the marketplace and have found that a smile can lower the price by up to 20%

It is all about people. I would recommend everyone to make a survey in advance what kind of people (majority) live here and who are they. It will prevent you to be frustrated, disappointed and get deceived by this sunny country. Thanks for sharing your experience, rKennedy01.

As I purchased and read the ebook, to be fair, the book did contain useful information for someone who was thinking of making the move to Mauritius. It really wasn't a diatribe against Mauritius, it -did- have value.

Apart from Mark Twain, what interest do the organisations you quote have in writing about Mauritius?

Oh dear, did I struck a nerve somewhere that you hold a grudge against me or what? So you want to get personal? OK then, so do YOU have the astronomical number of ebooks he sold then? Please enlighten us if you do.
If you bought and read the book, then good for you. What did you learn? Please also enlighten us on this aspect. If you also learnt to read my post's sentence you quoted, you would understand that it reads that he got a few buyers from this forum. In what way have made any mention to the total number of books he sold or the exact amount or even how flourishing his business is?

Regarding you question - What interests do organisations have in writing about Mauritius? Does trip advisor make any money from keeping track records of tourists' previous experiences and knowledge sharing? I think not.

With regards to Thomas Cook I can understand, it's to promote a tourist destination and make money. Tell me one thing then as you so called me Sherlocks, why don't they promote other african countries like Somalia for example?

So instead of making personal judgements about people, learn to treat people with respect and keep your sarcasm for yourself and yes I do have made some posts about bad things happening in Mauritius.

Today I was shocked to watch on the BBC what happened to a famous Irish lady strangled in her hotel room. Do you realise how this will escalate and affect the image of Mauritius over the coming days?

Well enough for now
