Where I stayed
...so to continue where I left off...
...I left Diu in not quite as much comfort as I would have liked due to a combination of the Portuguese legacy of the siesta and my inability to buy a bus ticket in good time. All of the sleeper berths were gone and the only seat left was the one right behind the driver
I'd already decided I wasn't getting any sleep anyway so sat up the rest of the night listening to music. At some horrendous hour and feeling a little dizzy from lack of sleep, I arrived at the city of Ahmedabad....
...stopped here for only a day, partly to break up the journey to Mumbai, but also to catch up with the photographers I'd met in Diu. Had a little sleep in the morning, then met up with the guys in the early afternoon. Was tricked into going to Macdonalds for dinner which was as dissapointing as it was disgusting (as you can imagine from a country that doesn't eat cows or pigs). After that they showed me around, we ate some ice cream, and decided to blow up one last water melon (which, due to an incredibly fast fuse on the Nazi Foil, was very nearly the end of one Chris Linaker).
Had a sleep in an incredibly crap hotel, then caught the train to Mumbai in the morning, where my life long gream of becoming a Bollywood movie star was bound to be realised (or given somesort of strange and freakish event, would be destroyed forever)...
