Stephen was walking down Beau Vallon Beach (Mahe Island) Seychelles, just before sunset when he spotted this beautiful Creole girl playing in the water with her brother. Seychelles is an archipelago nation of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, some 1,600 km east of mainland Africa, and northeast of the island of Madagascar. As the islands of the Seychelles had no indigenous population, the current Seychellois are composed of immigrants, mostly of French, African, Indian, and Chinese descent. French and English are the official languages, along with a French-based Creole.
