This excursion will give you the opportunity to discover the rare traditions, which still exist in the daily life of Mauritians. Start by visiting the capital's market, famous for its fruit and vegetable section; neat and colourful stalls with different vegetables, fruits and herbs. A cacophony, where the merchants try to attract your attention to the products. If you are curious, you can also see the herbal tea merchant, which according to him, can cure all types of pains. While you are there, go and see the part reserved for spices and souvenirs, extremely folkloric. In the market, you will take the opportunity to buy some ingredients to make the famous chatini coco, a condiment that you will taste during lunch. After Port Louis, you will go to the Eureka house, located in Moka. This beautiful colonial house is one of the few houses of this style that you can visit and experience our way of life. Before lunch on the porch, you will participate in the preparation of chatini coco, on the traditional curry-rock. At the end of the meal, a visit to the house is a must, to understand its historical importance and the anecdotes that make this place so unique
