On the long bus ride back to Ahmedabad from the coast, our bus developed a mechanical issue and we spent several hours at a truck stop before flagging down a private Indian bus for the final hour's drive where we were deposited at a local bus station. In order to get to the Sheraton we piled by threes into tuk tuks, three wheeler scooters made into open air buggies. Tuk tuks zoom amidst the cars, busses, bicycles, dogs, and pedestrians honking incessantly and coming within inches (or centimeters if you want to be metric about it) of them. It is unnerving and like all the passenger experiences here, you're much better off practicing detachment. They say to drive in India you need 3 things: a good horn, good brakes, and good luck.
We are headed to the airport to fly to Jaipur for the final leg of our tour. Lots of textiles ahead!
