Photographer's Note

The island of Mauritius lies about 800 kilometers east of Madagascar between longitudes 57 18' and 57 49' east, and latitudes 19 59' and 20 32' south. Pearl-shaped, it is sixty-one kilometers long and forty-six kilometers wide at the extremes and has a total land area of some 1,865 square kilometers--about the size of Rhode Island. Mauritian territory also incorporates the island of Rodrigues, some 600 kilometers to the east, which is 119 square kilometers in area.
The Moka Long Mountain Range is situated in the northwest near Port Louis, and its highest peak is Pieter Both (823 meters).If you look at the upper part it seems to be like a man's head....
