INDIA VACATION 2007
DIU SCHOOLGIRLS AND CITY MARKET DAY
Diu is a small island on the southernmost tip of Gujarat. It is connected by a causeway to the mainland. A Portuguese colony until 1961, Diu is now part of India.
The island, almost untouched by tourism, has rugged coastal landscapes and unspoilt beaches.
Diu, like the state of Gujarat itself, is one of the more prosperous parts of India, as you can see from the charming well-dressed schoolgirls pictured above.
The women in the second photo were selling vegetables on market day in the main town of the island.
