A Whole New World

We have arrived in Ahmedabad, India. After making our early morning flight out of Athens, we flew to Zurich for a four hour lay-over, and then onto Delhi. We arrived in Delhi at midnight and quickly made it to our hotel. The Ashok Country Resort was a really nice break in our travels. We were able to sleep in, enjoy a late morning buffet, and watch some Olympics before heading to the airport around 4pm.

Once at Delhi's Domestic Airport, things got a little interesting. We were greeted by airport security right when we got out of our car. Apparently you need a ticket to even enter the airport, which we didn't have, so they ushered us over to the Spice Jet booth located next to the airport. Their system or printers must not have been working, because they handed us this sheet of paper that had less on it than what we had in our hands. It was, however, enough because the guards let us through! Hilarious.


After long lines, lots of cutting, and crazy buses, we departed Delhi and arrived in Ahmedabad around 8pm. We were greeted by Heather (a fellow KJWW engineer) and our drivers, Gemar and Shailesh. Thankfully all our luggage arrived as well! We then headed to Gormos for a delicious dinner. Afterwards we settled into our apt, where Heather showed us around. Here are a few pics of the place, upon request! Anyone is more than welcome to come visit if they want!
