O Coqueiro

Devashish Patel
One afternoon, after having a big brunch at O'coqueiro we walked along the tiny lanes of Diu. The houses still have a strong Portuguese influence. Soon we came upon the Church of St. Thomas, that houses the Diu museum which is a collection of wooden statues, carvings, clocks, and artifacts from around Diu. The museum is tiny, and not noteworthy. The church, however, with its Gothic architecture is a sight to behold. From there, we walked straight ahead through a garden and reached St. Paul's church, a magnificent white structure built in the Baroque style of architecture by the Portuguese. We spent the evening at Vanakbara, a fishing village, where the trawlers bring fresh catch every evening from the sea. The hustle and bustle of the fishermen, amidst the backdrop of a setting sun, is a sight to behold.
