There is something magical to me about travel in India. It is harder in many ways but also often much more rewarding. And there is something about the colors there which I rarely find a match for elsewhere in the world. I just love it. On my most recent trip – just a couple nights for business – jetlag was in full effect. I was up before the sun each morning. And while that makes for a long, exhausting day, it also turned in to a spectacular photo-walk opportunity one morning. Here are some of my favorites from that walk.
Sunrise in Ahmedabad. Sometimes jetlag works in my favor.
The original Ellis Bridge over the Sabarmati River; new spans are now on either side.
Reading the morning paper
Just cut through here to get from the waterfront back to the main road. And watch where you step!
This was the path I walked (more or less; it is hard to force Google Maps to show paths where there isn’t really one). I started at the hotel, crossed the bridge and came back. Wanting more I headed to the waterfront along the southern entrance there, walked north on the water and then cut through town to get back to the hotel. That rebar “gate” was between the path and the road where I turned back in off the water near the northern end of the trip.
Yes, I walked through the random shanty-town area alongside the bridge to cut through a construction site to get to the waterfront promenade. And I walked back through that gap in the rebar, across some mud and adjacent to an area most definitely used as a latrine. It was all part of exploring the local scene. Not necessarily pretty, but still incredibly beautiful every step of the way.
