samosas let's go check those out look at how crispy  this looks i don't know if you can get in focus focus pretty cool let's see how  you do with the chilli bites   it's squishy like those bhajies but it promises to have a chili in it   yeah not bit of chilli it should have a chili  let's see go to the chili yet oh those are seeds   don't worry you're blurry yeah you come back in focus yeah they know how to make hot chili especially in the small villages  they don't play with the chili   they don't play here great though really  great this is where my chili snack came   from but what i didn't notice and it was at  the other one is they've all put bins out so you can easily throw your rubbish  away you probably didn't notice   there's a train station i'm just kidding it's  not a train station the train came very much   further down there there used to be a Camp De Masque station but but nowhere near where Camp De Masque   village is currently located we'll still go look  at this building because it looks old and cool   onion set so you can grow your own onions bon jour loads of eggs where are these veggies tomatoes  at 50 huh when was the last time you saw that   i know we're shopping here coffee and  because it's cold you can grow cauliflower so there we are oh look at this you can even get  tomatoes at 40 a pound wow wow local oranges cool you got some huh what's he got i don't know  and this is the fruit you get a cup of fruit   he came and hooted on his bike so we are going to see what the motorbike guy has i think he's got eggs no he's got bread what is that cake he's got cake  have a look oh my word what is that   pudding coconut powder pudding delivered  to you on a motorbike can you believe it   how awesome is that yes we're  gonna definitely get one please we're totally getting one 10 rupees for one i've never seen a motorbike guy  that is pudding can you believe it thank you look at this it was only 6 ruppes i need to find some sun for my pudding there you go i managed to use a finger shaky shaky look at this i've never seen this before  i have no idea what this is made of   uh it looks sort of jelly-like and it comes  in a yellow and a red but he insisted that   we have to try we have to try a bit of the red  so he gave us a bit of some they're so friendly   this is my motorbike pudding look at it it  wobbles and how appropriate to be eating   it outside glamour touch and this is totally  not going to be glamorous no i don't think so what is it what is it hang on you know what it is it's sago is it sago   it's sago i think it's like a i couldn't  say that not too sweet tapioca flour   and like a pineappley flavor the yellow is  definitely pineapple it's actually quite yummy   i've never had pudding from i'm gonna  stop saying that pudding from a motorbike   let me try the red one now you guys  wait there Riki trying the red wubbles a strawberry from a motorbike exactly my cheesecake and it's all those things  that strawberry from is it strawberry i'm not sure   the other one tastes a lot like pineapple  i'm not sure what that one tastes like um coconut mostly pretty cool absolutely like a kid definitely of the two the yellow is the winner  red is okay but it tastes like pineapple i don't   know if it's just psychosomatic or real so over  there is a shop that entirely sells eggs i think   i can only see eggs in the  window we'll have to walk past   look at this quaint old shop and  it's got a new piece of glass in it   so it looks like modern and and old at the  same time it's pretty cool it's pretty cool oh there's a mountain and a truck this mountain mountain Montagne Fayonce 1 700 feet wow i know this is the mosque Masjid E-Raza hope i said that right but look at how awesome these houses are down the street here  they're really quaint we're gonna have a look at   them because this is a and actually what looks  like to be quite a nice street with some roman   ruins we definitely gotta go look at the roman  ruins but have a look at that that one's painted   that one hasn't been painted yet so it's probably  coming wow and of course the water bottles i think it means don't park don't park here amazing how different small  towns have a a different side street vibe yeah this one's like a little bit hilly and  i don't know it feels a bit coastal although   we're not near the coast can't even describe to  you where Camp De Masque is it's near mountain Fayonce instead of painting your house  you tile it yeah it's pretty   these are roman ruins roman ruins not really  but pretty cool they've got the arch the columns and there's a s tailor so Riki's going into the tailors see what  they do all right these guys have a tailor originally south africa but we've lived in  Mauritius for four years but today we're visiting   your village they make pants for men in this  beautiful establishment so yeah he's got an   old-school iron which i'm sure is very trustworthy  and a special thing to iron pants on wow that is   so cool and then the sewing machines and  they've got their business making pants   that is so cool thank you there we go look at that  how awesome was that i must say in Camp De Masque Pave that they really do pave the walls and  everything with tiles it's quite popular   here and it looks beautiful and every street you  turn down is something a little bit different   now we've got the mountains mountain that's  quite a peak what the what thing up there is   i think it's someone's house there's a private  property up there okay yeah who knows have a   look at that there's a little house up there  and it's not like you can get to it maybe maybe   it's a shrine maybe that's a shrine up there  but look they've only half tiled their wall   yeah this is the the the decoration and they'll  put the pretty color cause they've done it to   their house there and those roses seem very  popular and an eagle maybe that one that one's   actually a pigeon what a great place to have  a market under a tree it's always best to have   your your vegetables under a tree makes them seem  fresher somehow pretty cool so this is Petit Cabane road so someone told us to come and explore  that pyramid mountain is pretty cool Le Petit Chef adventure de savouir i  assume that means like adventure flavor   that's the view Louis De Mescal got when he came  to in 1720 something and uh he was a soldier so it   was a garrison camp so they were probably here for  it for a while not just a one-night camping stay   they named the town after him but they didn't  really be yeah sort of they they kind of took   De Mescal and it just evolved into mask apparently  they were predicting the pandemic of 2020   and everyone would be wearing masks and they  were going to set up a big factory to make masks   except i haven't seen a single mask for  sale and you really desperately need it   i need to get a new one not in camp of masks  not in the camp of mask there are no masks in   the camp of masks looks like an old wall  normally old walls are both on the slope it's got some old iron things and a snail strangely everything about this building  feels right for it to be really really old   and it's got the stones the well-cut stones   the the actual setup with the windows is a  very old style they even have the grooved hooks   so it probably is a very old building  and it's connected to that old wall   and there's no wall behind it and  another one here have a look at that   not going to come back into my gap as he  nope he's not going to come back into my gap   and there must be something right  now you came back into my cabin yeah the building is so orange you  don't need your orange shirt today   yeah already i came prepared with a building  yeah cool so we just bumped into a subscriber   wow the way he pronounced the name of this  village we've been doing it very wrong   i'm not even going to attempt to i didn't  even know what it was like something   wow okay yeah anyway yeah you know where we are   and of course you can buy lots of pineapples on  the street four for a hundred rupees here wow   this would you believe it is the teal river  look at how teal it is it must be the light   normally it reflects the the blue sky and it  looks really rouso de share killers yeah we'll just   go with teal river till river it's the  teal river and it just floods down there   into the bananas but if you have a look on that  side whatever you can see it there's a pineapple   a massive pineapple that's even bigger  than Congoma's pineapple apparently this   has the sweetest and tastiest pineapples in  Mauritius possibly the world on the crossroads there's a cemetery kind of strange there is quite a large housing development  over there it's quite new as well if you   look on google earth it wasn't there wow she's a beauty what have you forgotten wow look at the size of her wait wait wait yep look  at the size of her she is huge that's the La Unity   the biggest chimney in Mauritius the tallest the  tallest chimney and Mauritius there's going to be   a lot of walking away from her for the montage for sure i think so but you can't see the top wow wow and round no it took me like a minute to walk around  it up close and personal she's even better   look at the stone work look at each  stone it's chamfered i think i think   that's called chamfering and they're  actually all cut round i mean genuinely   this lower portion is absolutely stunning i'm  gonna step away a little bit there's a shrine here but look at that and and the stonework above  is not as pretty as this but it is in the style oh man she is huge and of course  there's a bit of a way in there   it does look like the top is closed off but  i'll stick you guys in and see what we can see impressive you have to walk a very long way away  to appreciate just how big that is and   look how small Riki is and just  to get a perspective on it it is   that's Riki if we count how  many Riki's there are there i i don't even know i don't even know  how many Riki's there must be like about   200 how tall are you uh 1.65 1.65 x  200 everyone that is how tall this is someone has conveniently put the  date here incorrectly apparently   because Riki actually knows what the  real date is 1820 but there's another plaque up there that says 1899 1820 maybe they rebuilt it yeah maybe did you get some footage of  that wow okay so maybe 18 1899 but the   sugar mill was actually operating from 1820  until 1900. yeah it seemed strange that they   built something in 1899 and only operated until  1906. that's why it's in such good condition   not sure if you guys are getting that but it's  beautifully cut that is stonework oh it's videos you always trick me that lip up there really beautifully made walking away from Le Unity for the  montage wow she is really massive   i literally had no idea about these posts  they're actually hollow i mean it makes   sense but i never really thought about it  they actually have it's hollow and obviously   they're not going to make the whole thing out  of concrete but you know i have walked around   a bit and that's still a massive tower there  so it's probably pretty hard to get lost here   but this is the other side very strange  building and tons and tons of parking yeah a bit odd okay there's a temple let me show you  guys this will be the original Le Unity temple it looks like that could  have been the entrance way   so if we just shimmy it around veranda and up  the stairs this could have been the entrance   and this is the back part and you see they've  looked after their trees like they always do but it's these weird things it's like this why is  that there because the only thing you can do is   walk up these stairs and look in the window  there's no way in there that's very odd that   that is particularly odd there's  another one on the other side   this one not really standard stairs but stairs  still you can see them stairs you walk up them and   the only thing you're doing is looking through a  window and then and then there's even weirder one you got you got stairs that go to  nowhere no evidence that there was   ever a door there obviously there was a  door wow wow what a mysterious building just looks great from here as well it's like  a tropical jungle except there's a road just   there and another one just next to us this is  probably an original sugar cane road you can   see it's kind of paved yeah stones and they use  bricks yeah look at that wow it's kind of cool   walking through the palm trees on the really  bad road for the montage lazy video out the car so this is another place it's got some snacks  and things and the bus look at their own bus   i can see now what tomatoes are so cheap in this  town they grow them right here in all these huge   greenhouses we're going to see if we can get into  one it isn't hydroponic it's where they have a bag   of soil and the plant grows and then they just  water that bag of soil we'll see if we can't get   a little bit closer but look at that view wow  mountains all around thank you look at that one   no your car you go inside we can drive all the way  around yes okay from the dirt road yes there's many people there many  people up there okay wow thank you   cool thanks gave up on our dirt road too soon the boss is there great views of the multiple peaks from here they also grow bananas in Camp De Masque uh oh yip keep it steady Bryan keep it steady a lot of greenhouses sorry Tami absolutely stunning views and a lot of agriculture going on  here but we just came down that road   it's not a road it's not a road we just came wow  poor little Tami is so banged up but we're gonna   go see if we can't get into some green houses  that was the mission we should have just walked should have walked these are tiny little tomatoes getting their start   hopefully there'll be someone up there that can  show us one of the the places Riki does have   a friend who has a greenhouse so we'll go see  that one one day unfortunately the ones at Camp De Masque are a little bit trying yep got stuck unless we want  to climb over that well it doesn't look pleasant   but yeah i think greenhouses growing  tomatoes in the middle of the mountains   wow it's kind of cool i wouldn't recommend  coming driving down here just to see it though   if you have a tank yeah  unless you have a proper 4x4 Camp De Masque well one of the residents was  actually allergic to any chemicals in the place   so they couldn't chemicalize their  pineapples pineapples and bananas   so they've got the best bananas apparently  but everyone agrees the sweetest pineapples   and how sweet is that little pineapple  here's the sweetest little thing wow how awesome is that view   Camp De Masque and we're in the only place where  you don't actually have to wear a mask but great   street foods great people come and visit anyway  thanks for watching everyone see you next time hi everyone welcome to Camp De Masque start the montage Camp De Masque the village of mercy it's down there let's go find it
