Travel Tips for Port Louis

The capital of Mauritius

by Klod5

Port-Louis is the capital of Mauritius. Capital to the suffocating, populous and loud ambiance. Business center is seat of the banks and the main enterprises of the country, Port-Louis is also the Government's seat, of the Parliament and the main Judicial Court.

Rue de la Poudrière, de la Corderie, Bourbon...

by Klod5

Rue de la Poudrière, Rue de la Corderie, Rue Bourbon, Rue Dauphine, Rue de Entrecataux... no, we are not in Paris but well to Port-Louis, to Mauritius, under the hot sun of the tropicses. The multi-colored crowd that hurries on the sidewalks and on shoed it, the horns of the cars, smoke are there to remind it to us. All this world chatters, shout, challenge himself, made of the business. All can negotiate itself in the street, licit goods or no. But nothing squalid, the character good child of the population, his natural brightness makes that all happens simply. In the streets close to the Bazaar (the central market) one crosses a whole varied fauna : of the beggars that one would believe took the middle age, the roaming dogs, the men and of women of all colors, of all races (and more again!), of all ages. All Port-Louis collides, jostle himself, parley, sometimes abuse himself, make up in these teeming streets where mingle modernity and archaism.

No price on the market

by Klod5

These women who choose with attention their apples of love are going to negotiate the price announced by the seller certainly then. The bargaining is a tradition Maurice's, and all commercial act is topic to bargaining. To the bazaar, it will happen very quickly, in kréol. For the fruits and vegetables, the tariffs are the more often indicated on the small placards in wood, but it doesn't prevent to bargain, especially if one buys a more important quantity than to the plain. For the whole remains, there is not any indication of tariff. The European tourist, will have all interest to raise the ear to hear these bargainings, and so to have an idea of the price proposed to the mauriciens, before inquiring for an article.

Alouda

by SWFC_Fan

Before my visit to Mauritius in February 2008, I had read about the refreshing local drink known as Alouda, and that Port Louis Central Market was the best place on the island to try it.

So, during a daytrip to the Mauritian capital, I headed to the central market and sought out somewhere to sample a glass of this vanilla and almond flavoured drink. It didn’t take me long to find somewhere and, in fact, within seconds of entering the marketplace I was ushered into a shaded food and drink court where I found bustling crowds and all sorts of varieties of Alouda.

I opted for the most common version, and paid 15 Rupees (approx. 0.25 GBP) for a large glass of almond flavoured drink, topped with vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce. I wasn’t entirely sure what was in the drink, but it had a strange texture (a bit like a lumpy milkshake), with some slimy, jelly-like molecules and lots of stringy bits. I wasn’t too keen on the texture, but the taste was great. It proved to be a very refreshing drink on a hot, sunny day.

I managed to find this recipe online (thanks to: http://ile-maurice.tripod.com/alooda.htm):

2 tablespoons of basil seeds
1 cup of chopped agar agar strips
1 litre of cold milk
500ml of water
Crushed ice
Vanilla essence
Almond essence
Sugar

It seems that it was the agar agar strips (which, according to the recipe, can be substituted with chopped gelatine jelly) that gave the drink its slimy jelly-like texture.

I saw locals drinking other versions of Alouda that were mixed with Coca Cola or other soft drinks, or which included food colourings to give a green, pink or blue appearance. Some versions of Alouda don’t include milk, just water, and have the appearance of a runny jelly.

Be sure to sample a refreshing glass of Mauritius’ famous Alouda!
