AHMADABAD
16/3/10: We both had a great sleep and woke up with the paper waiting for us under the door. The predicted temp was 40C today so it was going to be tough to get a lot of sightseeing in. There’s not much to see in Ahmadabad and it’s basically another powering city. The food was cheap; we ate in the same restaurant that had a huge tree growing out through the roof.

The tuk tuk driver was right and this was a first for us as they usually take you to the wrong place. I tipped him an extra 20rs just for the hassle. Our train had already arrived so we chose our beds and settle in for the night hoping to arrive safely in Udaipur tomorrow.
