    Unsporty people better skip the "port-ferry" !because it might be really dangerous. This ferry takes you from your cruiseship to the Caudan Village, the modern shoppingcentre close to the citycentre, BUT first you have to climb down from the pier over some ladder, but in the Caudan Village there will be mostly some smaller ships that you have to walk over, while they are swinging by every step you do or other people do. In other words: there is no landing-stage or pier to step out of the boat, but you have to walk over the deck of several other boats.
    An eldery lady from my ship broke her shoulder that way and had to stay in hospital for a while, so maybe elderly or handicapped people should really rather take the tours organized by the cruise-lines !

    Busy streets with parking problems, Mauritius

    Parking in Port Louis is always a big problem, especially in the busy areas in the middle of the day as there are always not enough parking lots along the streets. Take note if you are driving to Port Louis.

    Any price on the Bazaar (and others markets)

    No price on the Bazaar

    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.
