Maldives - Seychelles Exchange 2004
arrival of the Maldivian SIV youth in December 2004 can be described
as an experience not to be forgotten. Despite my absence from
the initial part of the activities which took place on Mahé,
I certainly enjoyed the last few days here on Praslin as we
got to discover various things together and befriended each
arriving at the Baie Ste Anne jetty on Wednesday the 15th, our
next stop was Alizé's home where we dined as we all secretly
dreamt of what laid waiting for us in the days that would follow.
schedule was packed with visits to renowned locations here on
Praslin namely the Praslin Ocean Pearl Farm, the Vallée de Mai
and Anse Lazio where we had a superb picnic. Humour was always
present. A cultural night was equally organised where both delegations
demonstrated their cultures. We did not miss out on displaying
the "Moutya" our traditional dance, of course. The Maldivian
goodies on show were truly tasty.
these we crossed over to La Digue where we visited L'Union Estate
and Anse Source D'Argent. Unfortunately there always comes a
time when all the fun must end. After long goodbyes and tears
we wished Hanni, Fatoun, Cidae, Mohammed, Moosa, Shanuha and
Mr Hassan all the best. Nonetheless, we still keep in touch
as we had exchanged phone numbers and home addresses. We all
remain hopeful that we will see each other once more!
