    Nice shots!

  • Nice photos, good action photo of I believe Tae Kwon Do demo. The foreign transport plane with the parachutists was a French military Transall C-160. The SMF contingent was the guard of honour and they were very smart in their drill. I squirmed at the CG marching some individuals did not know their left from right but then I have a critical military view. The French parachutists were from 2e régiment de Parachutistes d’Infanterie de la Marine Française based in Reunion.

  • The French were parading in their colours, not even any acknowledgement that their are on Mauritian soil… That was the ugliest thing i’ve seen so far: which country allows a foreign country to parade during its National Day? Incredibly lame idea.
    The FAZSOI were here in 2007, but did not parade: why now? If it’s an acknowledgement to former colonisers, may we expect British troops to parade here next year? Or even Dutch? Or Arabs (whichever was the country which really came before the Dutch)? Or even better: the US: they are our new colonisers, given that they are already here on OUR Chagos?
    Or was it just because they were here? Then, what kind of people are governing us: when you already have a wife at home since 44 years already, she’s yours whatever your find bad with her, it’s not when you see any attractive woman passing on the street that you have to invite her into your house on your wedding day to show her talents and make a strip-tease like the French were doing yesterday.
