Day 1: Rajkot - Museum of Folk Heritage

After checking in with our host families on Friday December 30, we immediately started the day's program by meeting with members of the Rotary Club of Rajkot Metro. Our first stop was the Museum of Folk Heritage in the Munjka Village. Here we met our wonderful guide who showed us a countless pieces of antique artwork, crafts, tools, and furniture. The art gallery (of which we were not able tot take photos) displayed various pieces of contemporary Gujarati artwork as well as hand painted posters for Gujarati silent films
