Urglaudoo regretted his reports about Humans after staying a month in Mauritius. The island population was ethnically mixed, and living comfortably together. The hotel owner and her four-year old joined him. “This is Pina,” said Adonya, smiling. “Someday she’ll save the world!”
Urglaudoo smiled wanly, looking Human except for his pupils. He made one last call to stop the sterilization order. Moments later, General Pongradee teleported in. “Urglaudoo! Your reports…”
“A mistake,” said Urglaudoo. “Humans are worth saving.”
Adonya returned with a savory mix of Creole and Indian foods. As Pongradee ate with relish, tiny Pina climbed into his lap. “Your eyes are pretty.”
“But they’re alien,” protested Pongradee.
“That’s nice,” she smiled, and fell asleep.
An hour later, Pongradee returned Pina to her mother and teleported back.
“I think your incredible food changed his mind,” smiled Urglaudoo.
Adonya grinned. “No. I told you. Someday Pina will save the world!”

I confess to knowing very little about the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius when I started. I did some research, and loved what I found. I like any place that is multi-cultural and Mauritius is one of the best examples of this I’ve ever seen. Below are some of the links I checked out. I want to visit this place someday.
Mauritius Food: Farata
“This is similar to Indian paratha – a flat bread eaten with curry. It’s buttery, doughy and delicious. Find them being sold at street stalls or in many Mauritian and Indian restaurants.”
