Ahmedabad Trip–The Fun Itinerary

We are geared up for our Ahmedabad trip. We’ve postponed it 2 times already leading to a one month delay. Finally, the time has come. When E sent this itinerary (since she is from Ahmedabad and is going to be our guide for 2 days), the excitement that had fizzled out because of the indefinite postponement, has emerged again.
