Mauritius (pronounced Mar-ish-us). A small island country off the east coast of Africa. This rich island seems comparable to a Caribbean island getaway... except a large amount of the locals in Mauritius are of Indian descent with either a Hindu or Islamic background and so the food served at restaurants often follow the rules of these religions. Cool! This map shows some popular tourist attractions. Hopefully I can use this one day.

The wonderful #interiors of the At-Attarine #madrasa inside the old #medina of Fez. Built by the Marinid sultan Uthman II in 1323-5.

It was more like two hundred years (but it was very sporadic and mainly ineffectual)), and of course in the first place Muslims conquered by force lands which were Christian. North Africa and parts of the Middle East were Christian before they were ever Muslim. What's more pertinent is that Islam believes it is still in this holy war. RELIGION CONNECTED TO POLITICS IS THE PROBLEM
