What did I smile about in January! - Ahmedabad

Our second stop was Ahmedabad, India. We got there just in time for Uttarayan - Makar Sankrati.

Kaipo Che - the Gujarati people celebrate this festival by flying kites (patangs). This was Amit's first try at it and let me tell you its harder than it looks.

Friends - It was so nice to see Sneha and Neel and ofcourse the kiddo's. We got to see Janvi for the first time and isn't she a doll. We live in the same part of the world but got to see each other after a year in India go figure.
Best Buds - Bhavik warmed up to us really quickly and made best friends with Amit. As you can see Amit enjoyed his company equally. We really enjoyed time with him and listening to all his stories about his favorite super hero's.
Food and Festivities - One of the best things about India is the food. Fresh paan, garam garam jalebi and also the festivals. People of all walks of life know how to have a good time even if they can only afford a few things. Smiles all around.
'
Rajwadu - all of us decided to go to the Rajwadu restaurant for some authentic gujurati food. Man it was delish but we were so full by the end of this meal. Fresh makhan, rotla's, garam kadhi, and a variety of shaak's. Yum! Great company and entertainment - great night. 
Family - my parents have large families and they all welcomed us in their homes with lots of love. We had a good time meeting everyone and want to thank them for their hospitality.
