It was No big deal. It wasn't much of a help.
Well would you mind telling a little bit more about your situation and what do you actually know before moving just to share your actual status with other people on this forum?
I'm still looking for some more info concerning your other questions but I do not know much about properties.
5/ I can assure you that the Western area of Mauritius have the places well sought after and very pleasant to live in among the different parts of Mauritius. Flic and Flac and Tamarin should have all the facilities within range.
Port-Louis the city center is like 45mins-1hr away from there.
Moka (the place where LeBocage International School is situated) is like 1hr-1hr15mins from there.
Do you know how to use Google map?? I'm sure your elder child might know and you can zoom on the western part of Mauritius just to give you an insight.
I'm sure other people will try to help as well.
6/ A maid you say?Yes. The houses in Mauritius (you might already know) are not like the Victorian style ones clustered to each other that we've got here in the UK. I wonder how you English people manage to live in such type of housing with such restricted space. (That's a point of view from a Mauritian student in a Victorian style house.....just my impression)
Unless you live in an Apartment, you will have your own spacious house with garden in Mauritius. Imagining this already rings a bell that there is going to be a lot of tidying to do. A maid might come in handy to do the cleaning and ironing. Out of my mind, please cater for 75£pm (around MUR4000pm)
Well I guess you can then Cook your own food!!! I wouldn't mind popping in sometime especially after Christmas and take a share of Stuffed Turkey and Cranberry sauce. (tasted this traditional British dish for the first time this Christmas and put on a few pounds)
That's it for now. Feel free to fire any questions and I'll try my best to answer (if I know the answers of course as my lecturer reckons I'm stupid
