Ahmedabad sucks

We were forced to stop twice in Ahmedabad (on our way to and from Mandvi). We barely made it out of the train station - it took us ten minutes to cross the first road, filled with a relentless stream of cars/trucks/buses/rickshaws/carts piled with vegetables/wood/parcels/etc going in every direction at once. We hated it!

Eventually, we did escape the train station, and visited a couple nice sights: we took a "Heritage" walk through some interesting small neighbourhoods, we visited a Ghandi museum and we had a buffet meal (on banana-leaf plates) at a (re-created) traditional village. Still, we wouldn't recommend visiting Ahmedabad unless completely necessary...
