As the sun begins to rise over the Chamarel plain in the Rivière Noire District of south-western Mauritius, you may think your eyes are playing a trick on you. At first glance, you’d believe the hills are swathed in shadows but as you get closer, the shadows begin to turn into vibrant shades of earthen meringue.
