Weekly Recap: August 28, 2016

Hello from Ahmedabad folks. Shipra and myself are checking off another Hyatt off our list today, staying at the Hyatt Ahmedabad this time. I have to admit the floor plan of this hotel looks exactly the same as Hyatt Amritsar, and that should not be surprising given both of them have the same owner. The week behind us has had tonnes of news, so here is a recap.
