After the uncomfortable bus ride, breakfast in Surat and a hour and a half train journey to Vadodara I eventually arrived at my old uni friends apartment for a relaxing weekend in a luxurious apartment.
Caught up on some sleep and gossip, did a bit of shopping, went to the cinema and ate some nice Gujarati and Italian food.
Baroda (Alkapuri) is a great balance of traditional and modern India and has it's share of very western malls/cinemas...
Being in my ancestral home of Gujarat for the first time felt quite strange. People generally spoke Gujarati which I understand but am reluctant to try speaking, I suppose as I am a bit more comfortable with Hindi now which they all understand anyway.

I managed to book a train ticket to Somnath as I had a few days to kill before Nisha's birthday weekend in Mumbai and I wanted to head to Dwarka to meet my cousin brother-in-law.
Took a 3 hour train ride to Ahemdabad before catching the overnight 3 tier sleeper to Somnath.
