Saint Pierre Ravine Des Cabris

La Ravine des Cabris est une des premières zones de peuplement de Saint Pierre. Marquée par un passé profondément rural où la canne à sucre, la mangue et le café constituaient les principales productions agricoles. Aujourd'hui, le quartier s'est urbanisé et est devenu en l'espace d'une quinzaine d'années le principal lieu résidentiel de la ville. Le quartier a su conserver son cachet pittoresque et authentique.

C'est ici que la légende de "grand-mère Kal" est née : Vieille femme aigrie errant  à la recherche d'enfants à dévorer. Plus prosaïquement, il s'agirait d'une esclave nommée Kal qui se serait jetée dans la ravine par dépit suite à la mort de son fils.

Ravine des Cabris is one of the first zones of population of Saint-Pierre.  Marked by its past times
deeply rural, the sugar cane, the mango and coffee constituted the principal agricultural productions.  Today, the neighborhood becomes urbanized and tends to be, in the space of around fifteen years, the principal residential place of the city. The neighborhood knew how to preserve his picturesque and authentic character. It is here that the legend of "grandmother Kal" was born:  Old embittered woman roaming to the research of children to devour. Prosaically it would be a slave woman named Kal who would have desperately thrown herself in the river after the death of her son.

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
