Victoria, Mahé, Seychelles - 22nd July 2008

By: Apperveilchen

Victoria is the capital of Seychelles. It has ca. 60 000 inhabitants, the only traffic light on Mahé (Praslin has one at the airport that warns cars when a plane is landing, I rather doubt that there are any others), no parking garage and most shops close at 5 p.m.

This is the clock tower in the modern center of Victoria. It was erected in 1903, the year when Seychelles became a colony of the UK, instead of just a province of the colony Mauritius. It's a smaller copy of a clock tower that was built in London a few years earlier.
It has become the symbol of Victoria. It strikes the hour twice, with one minute in between.

the postoffice:

palace of justice, also called Victoria house, it was built as the New Oriental bank in the late 19th century:

Seychelles emblem in front of the ministry of finance:

There are a number of shops for clothes and a big supermarket (for these islands) but all in all the choice is very limited. 2 or 3 different kinds of instant milk, 3 different kinds of rice, 2 different types of pasta, 3 different kinds of totmato sauce, 2 different juices... Not a single dress in my size. For shopping I'll have to go elsewhere.
