It may not seem like there is much to go on (for me at least). But I am sure we will narrow it down after just a few guesses.

Yes, that is correct. Oddly, English is spoken by very few people now in Mauritius.

I fact, English is the primary official language of Mauritius, but when I was there, there wasn't a single English language newspaper nor radio station.

That's very interesting. Naturally I would picture places moving towards English, not away from it.

Also, the darkness of the complexion arises more from South Indian than from African, and there is a Hindu majority. Note the two women walking to the right in the foreground. They look to me like they might be Australian Aboriginal.

I saw the sign too and was going to guess St. Maarten again on the French side.

The next one I'll guess Japan as a start

So much for my "brilliant" deductions.

That Japanese Tea Garden could be just about anywhere, but I think it's in San Francisco.

It reminds me of Buchart Gardens in Victoria, BC, or Manito Park in Spokane...and the one in SF.

They all tend to run together in my mind...looks more like Buchart to me.

It is San Francisco. I'm going there Monday for my first time so I felt the need to post a picture of somewhere in the city.
