A Spelling Bee competition that Shivani participated in took the family to Ahmedabad, Gujarat. It was a short stay and we made it to the Sabarmati ashram from where Mahatma Gandhi orchestrated a great many events for India's freedom.
Ahmedabad is a very clean and surprisingly green city given the high temperatures in summer and generally tough weather throughout the year. Overall, a good safe city, good people around and a wonderful place for a quick 2-day visit. We skipped the Akshardham temple as it was heavily crowded. But, it was a fabulous view from outside. There was also a unique underground stepped well in the outskirts of the city that we couldn't make it to.
