March 12 (today!) is Mauritius' Independence Day!
2009 marks the 40th anniversary of Mauritius' independence from The United Kingdom. Mauritius Independence Day traditions include touting Mauritius flags (pictured above), celebrating and supporting the Mauritius community and partying all night long (sound familair?)!
