First Impressions

Posted by

I left Melbourne on a Friday morning. My flight was delayed a couple of hours, but hey this was almost India, get used to it. I flew non - stop to Delhi where there was a few hours to kill before my connecting flight to Ahmedabad. My first impressions of India were 1. that Delhi at night from the air was an amazingly sprawling city, low rise buildings and lights for miles and miles, endless lights, and 2. the airport was surprisingly well run. There was even a little ice-cream cart selling what looked like homemade kulfi, civilised and homey at the same time, nice touch.

Arriving in Ahmedabad was all about seeing my daughter again. Ally met me at the airport in an auto rickshaw, and we began the drive back to NID (National Institute of Design) where she had been studying Communication Design. On the way we saw many cows, goats, cows, dogs, cows, monkeys, cows, even two elephants and of course more cows! Even at this early hour the streets were busy with people, friendly, smiley happy people. It felt good to be there.
