Day 5 - September 21 2015:It was a Monday early morning. I had already packed up the bags the previous night, and was waiting for the rain to go down. I left Moti-Daman at around 6:00 AM and began my journey towards the state of Rajasthan. The drizzle had not stopped and it was severe since day 3, yet I decided that this was the moment to cherish on the road and I continued towards Ahmedabad.At 8 AM, I took a small breakfast break and continued riding until Surat. On the outskirts of Surat, I noticed a few trucks piled up on the highway. My initial thought was about an accident on the highway or probably a toll gate for the trucks to go. There was enough space for one motorcycle to ride between the trucks and I was slowly and steadily heading, but this continued for about 30 minutes and I realized that I had waded through stagnated truck traffic for almost 5 kms. On to the extreme left of the road was enough slush to skid the motorcycle. In some stretches, I had to brave that and ride through it slowly.The traffic had piled up for almost 22 kms and it took a good 2.5 hours to go past all that. Some construction work was happening across the Narmada river, which was the prime reason for this traffic jam. It was almost 10:30 AM and I was in the impression that it wouldn't be easy to reach Mount Abu or head towards Jaisalmer. The next 3 hours went on peacefully and the rain gods finally showed some mercy.At around 2 PM, I had reached Ahmedabad. As I entered the city, I was in a confusion as to which direction to head, to Udaipur or Mount Abu? I finally made up my mind and decided to head towards Udaipur, but did not know the route. A couple of traffic constables helped me with the directions by "leading the way" and riding along with me till where the highway began. From there, I continued towards Udaipur, about 260 kms away. The next couple of hours went by quietly as I reached Shamlaji, a very sleepy little town on the borders of Rajasthan. I was still 100 kms away from Udaipur. The moment I entered Rajasthan and towards Udaipur, the rain came down again. By 7 PM I had reached Udaipur and settled down for the day.another 670 kms travelled.Daman - Vadodara - Ahmedabad - Shamlaji - Udaipur.

Unlike the places I’ve talked about yet, Diu is more influenced by Portuguese culture than Indian, as is evident by the architecture of the place. Apart from the historic forts, churches and scenic lighthouses and an amazing variety of sea food, Diu has pretty good opportunities for those who like adventure sports, especially parasailing. Also, there is a species of trees called the ‘Hoka trees’ (which is basically an overgrown version of the umbrella palm). These trees are only found in Diu, Zambia and Kenya.
