Ahmedabad first impressions
Cleaningness, order, tidiness!
A few roads taking us from the airport to the center of town leave us a very positive and open impression. Feels good to be here!
We find one hotel in old town near major mosques and temples...
Tomorrow first meetings on water, water sanitation as well as water dynamisation for niche markets...
Couple of things strike me right away: very few people speak English in the streets, which for such a commercial, business oriented major city of the richest state, with the most powerful CM in India feels a bit weird, and the second is that here rickshaw don’t seem to try to rape you, they have builshited us so far in the prices and that is such a relief in comparison to my experiences in the south.
