Here are a couple places I’d consider stops on a Maker-vacation… The first is the Gujarat Province on the Gulf of Cambay, India – this is where cruise ships go after they outlive their usefulness… [via] – Link & Google map.

Update: DGary writes “My buddy Pardeep grew up in Alang, before it became a breaker yard, and left in the early 90’s, ironic in this case because when I met him he was living in Tuscon while I was working at Davis-Monthan on a contract, I was there for 3 years and never made it to the scrap yard, which Par said reminded him of home, only cleaner, and in the middle of the desert.

We last worked togther on software that runs automated foundries, some of which very likely use scrap from both of these yards.

From what Par’s told me Alang has a horrendous safety record, but you can get stuff from the shops at cutthroat prices.”
