Michael Merkel: Mauritius

Mauritius / La Réunion

In his travel lecture Michael Merkel takes us to the islands of the Mascarenes. During his parental leave, he spent six weeks in Mauritius and the neighbouring French overseas department of La Réunion. Away from luxury hotels and wellness facilities, the journey takes us through volcanic landscapes and sugar cane plantations, to horse racing tracks and football pitches, to temples and dental surgeries. In search of the trace of the dodo, the relatively short history of the two islands unfolds on this evening, between colonisation, slave labour and extinction of species, as well as independence and economic boom.
