    Thank you for yet another bunch of wonderful memories and friends I would want to cherish for life, this time around amidst the salty yet sweet Kutch desert land. Applause for covering all the must visit spots ... Kutch, Mandvi, Dasada, Bajna, Bhuj and finally Ahmedabad. The beauty and the flavour of Gujarat along the route, left us wanting for more each day, despite a packed itenary.
