The Mauritian People
Most Mauritians speak French and say “Bonjour” or “Salut” when greeting one another accompanied with a handshake. Alternatively, if it's between friends, they may say “Korek?” or “Ki position? (how are things?)” To get someone's attention you would say “S'il te plait (Please)” Personal space is important, however eye contact is not required.
