A ‘Limo’ to the Ahmedabad Courtyard by Marriott

After our various cab and Uber rides, featuring swerving and honking in Suzuki Swifts and other tin cans, albeit at ridiculously cheap fares, it was time to splurge (about $28) on a Toyota SUV, and a driver trained not to scare tourists on the 45-minute drive.

It was wonderful.

On the way, we saw kites and kite-flyers by the hundreds as Ahmedabad’s kite festival comes to a close.

Then we rolled up to the Courtyard, waited as hotel security checked our car (complete with opening the hood and employing an explosive-sniffing Yellow Lab), and walked through the metal detector into the lobby.
