Snippets from Ahmedabad

April 8, 2010

I have left it too late to even attempt to describe Ahmedabad properly. And it is still such a jumble in my head of searing heat, pattern, colour, noise and dust, smiling faces, wandering cows, over-powering smells and kindness.

Beautiful stone grills

Traditional after dinner 'digestives'

Busy street with Elephant (camels, donkeys, oxen also common means of transport)

Pot seller at the market

Lovely mother and her baby

Mosque calligraphy

Feel sad in a way that I am not better built to withstand the heat. My time exploring has been limited to early morning and late evening, and even then it is hard going. Still: the sights, sounds and smells of the city are now firmly in my head, and who know how it will come out!
