Guess where? (June 2011)

Hi everyone!

Have you really been in each and every corner of your island? Well, this game can be of great help to prove this point. Months ago, I posted the first pictures in this category, you might still remember

  1. The Eiffel tower in Mauritius
  2. The “Beware” sign or
  3. The beautiful beach

I am glad to say that I have decided to post a new series of pictures for this game! Youupiiiiii!

However, this time, I will be including several pics, taken in different regions of the island. Up to you to guess where and write the answer in the comments section.

Are you ready?

Note :

  • I will give the answers on Wednesday (15th June 2011) , together with the name of the winners.
  • Comments that include any answers (right or wrong) will be approved (and viewable) only on Wednesday. If you have any other related comments, please post them separately.
  • Please, please and PLEASE, do NOT post any answers on Facebook/Twitter.

What do winners get as prize? Nothing yet, just a round of applause from all the readers and myself.

Show us that you have been to all places in Mauritius. Good luck!

Update – 15 June 2011


The awaited day is finally here.

First Picture

So, the first picture was taken at Dauget, Port Louis. Yeah! In Port Louis!
Dauget is a health track(“parcours de santé”) of several kms and you can even get to the top of Le Pouce mountain if you follow the track.

You can click on the picture below to have a closer look at the plan.

The google map link :

Second Picture

This one is gonna a bit tough to explain. As replied in the answers, it is found at the junction of A2 and B21 roads. The shot was taken besides the bridge which is situated just at the junction. This region is known as Rosalie, lying between Depinay and the road leading towards Ville Bague/La Nicoliere/Mare D’australia.

The google map should help you to find the location :

So, let’s see who got both answers correct (in order of submission) :

  1. Devesh Ramchurn (Got both correct answers at second trial)
  2. Akash Gura Goredo
  3. Warez12

Only 1 correct answer :

  • Prisheela Ramtohul (Pic 2)
  • CarrotMadMan6 (Pic 2)
  • Vrijnesh (Pic 2)
  • Devesh Ramchurn (Pic 1) – On first trial
  • Richa24 (Pic 2)
  • Mukhtarb2 (Pic2)
  • TL (Pic 1)
  • yurit0s (Pic 1 – Gave too many suggestions lol)
  • siddhi (Pic2)

I officially declare the great winners as Devesh Ramchurn, Akash and Warez12.

As promised, BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE to the three of them and also to all the participants of this forth edition of the “Guess where” game 🙂
Keep tuned for the next game and in some weeks, I will probably ask you to submit pictures that can be used in our next edition.

  • Yeah. Quite recent ones, a few months back. So, it did not changed a lot
    since 2005. Perhaps it was the final design itself 😛
