Photographer's Note

Palm Trees are not growing on Mauritius. They are planted for tourists at the hotels. Why? Nobody knows it really and I'm wondering because Mauritius has a lot of beautiful trees. During the monsun time cyclones are destoying the top of the trees - the result could be seen here.

Distance between my last shot and Mauritius about 8465km.
