      I've got to get myself on a slow boat to Mauritius...I love the buildings! The name Blue Penny Museum sounds like something from a dollhouse.

      Mauritians are funny. Philatelists call the stamps I am writing about the "Post Office Mauritius", after the inscription (supposedly an error) on the stamps. But in Mauritius the stamps are colloquially referred to as the Blue Penny stamps. Philatelists get upset about this, because the red stamp is the penny value and the blue is the two pence (not penny value). It doesn't bother me! There are specimens of both the red and blue "Post Office" stamps in this museum, hence the name.
