As we were exploring the narrow streets I got a call from the owner saying “you liar, how could you lie being a girl. Get back the scooty this instant’. There went our plans of being smart for the day down the drain. . .Standing on the street, thinking what to do next we happened to be near a Muslim wedding celebration.So as anyone would have done, we gate crashed the celebrations. We ate the snacks provided. Took photos as a tourist of those people and spent the next hour there being treated like celebrities until we got kicked out by the bride’s mother.

We then went to Diu fort which is surrounded by the sea on one side and is in ruins. It was an abandoned old fort which housed numerous buildings from a jail to church and a lighthouse. The day was getting hotter and Diu being next to the sea is pretty humid. Wiping away our sweat and drinking tender coconut water, we explore the ruins at the fort until we came to a spot with a beautify view of the ocean where we decided to settle until the sun became more tolerable.

The nearest tourist spot was Diu fort and being there we felt like we are in the British era of the 17th century, the architecture of fort, the location of the fort (it was built in front of the sea) and the canons (most importantly). That day rain was pouring from the morning and the scenery of fort was ineffable. It took us about two hours to tour all fort, found old prison and church in it.
