Our last morning in Ahmedabad was intentionally slow. We savored every moment of drinking masala chai and reading the newspaper. We delayed over-stuffing our luggage and making the last phone calls to say goodbye. We helped Sonya do some last minute shopping at the mall across the street instead of triple-checking our flight information.
We walked around the neighborhood to take pictures and stumbled upon a crowded kite stand. The second they saw our cameras, they asked us to capture their photo. As happy as we were taking everyone's picture and seeing their smiles, it makes leaving India so much more difficult. Just clicking their pictures sent them giggling and running to grab their friends.
It will be so hard to leave India tonight. We would much rather fly kites for Uttarayan than sit on a plane to London. This trip to India was truly unforgettable and life-altering.
