Weekend in Diu

Our overnight adventure!  First stop was Ghandi's birthplace in Portbander
Exact spot where Ghandi's was born

I have a new appreciation for the Swastika - it has very different meaning here and at first it bothered me but now not so much.

Then in to Diu - first we checked out the fort - this was built by the Portuguese in the 1400s

Here is our resort 
Special lock on the room doors 

Then the coconut festival - a nice surprise - there was a coconut in this thing that the men pulled this thing apart to get the coconut tin the middle 
Then next day, the monkeys

  1. Very cool trip and photos - that Ghandi swastika is definitely a bit of a shock.
