Interesting Place - Mumbai

Officials in the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay) have had all the coconuts round the city's Gandhi museum, removed.

(Why? Well, US President Barack Obama is visiting, and they don't want the coconuts to fall on his head! According to George Burgess, director of the Florida Museum of Natural History, "Falling coconuts kill 150 people worldwide each year, 15 times the number of fatalities attributable to sharks." I wonder who compiled the stats?)
