It is such a simple joy to see the waves making gentle sounds as they hit the shore. It is so therapeutic to see the incoming lapping waves and realizing that it is an unending phenomenon which has been happening for millions of years, and would continue for yet another million!
Mozambique Hotel Diu
This hotel or boarding house is one of the oldest ones around here on this island. Surprisingly, it is still functional. Among the early settlers of this island, a sizeable chunk of population included the slaves brought in by the Portuguese. Most of them were of African origin, often hailing from Mozambique. Its entry might not be as grand as its history as one may have to find its entry through a vegetable market, but then it is very hard to miss its facade and imposing architecture.
