Steve's 40th and our Vaco!
As many of you know, Steve recently turned a big 40! We spent a nice day out and about the town, exploring a colonial plantation and having a nice Mauritian-style lunch (in lieu of our planned catamaran trip -- it rained :(.)
As a special marker for the big day, this was his present -- an original painting by famed Mauritian artist Vaco. You can check out more of his work at www.vacoartiste.com. Cool stuff. He also happens to be our neighbor.
The painting represents Port Louis (bottom left) and le "coin de mire" -- the rock on the top right that's near our house. Plus, don't miss our friend, the red bird (it was a commission after all!).
