As this is the last day of me being in the UK before I jet off to Mauritius (via Dubai) tomorrow, here’s a GIF of a dodo, our national bird. The dodo looks like it couldn’t get around fast enough, which might have led to its extinction at the hands of hungry Portuguese sailors and colonists.

From tomorrow until mid-December, I’ll be in Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, visiting my family there and generally having a good time!. Probably will not be able to post much, if at all, on Gifville, but will be missing you guys all the same.

Celebrating the beauty of our wonderful island republic. I may be an Anglo-Mauritian with roots in three countries, but I’m very proud of my Mauritian heritage, not just today, but every day.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of independent Mauritius, Google launched a special Doodle for its Mauritian users, featuring the national flag gently fluttering in front of a tropical scene.

Happy Independence Day, Mauritius!
Sadly, I couldn’t find any more Mauritian independence-themed GIF so for my last post for today, I present to you a silhouette map of the island.
