Today, we woke up early to drive to Bharuch, which is a city in Gujarat that is where my grandparents are from. We brought everything we needed. We slept in the car, since we had to wake up at 4:30 am. Then, we had a "good and filling breakfast." We played on our electronics the rest of the time. The car ride to Bharuch was going to be about 5 hours, but it was actually 6 hours. Finally, we arrived at Bharuch. We met our cousins. Our cousins were: Kumail, Lamiya, Abas, Umaihani, and Zahabia. Kumail was 11, Lamiya was 8, Abas was 10, Umaihani was 8 too, and Zahabia is 13. We ate lunch first. It was mostly fruit, but the best fruit I ever had. We also had my favorite meal, Biryani! Biryani is spicy rice with either chicken or goat meat. Then, we played hide-and-seek tag. We stopped playing that game because Umaihani and Aqeel bumped into each other. So, we played regular hide-and-seek. Then, we had to do Ziyarat. It took a short time. Then, we met some other family members. There was a baby girl named Nakiya. We stayed there and had a couple snacks and drinks, and then went back to get our stuff to go back to Mumbai. We got McDonalds and ate it in the car. When we got to the hotel, I was sick from the dust in the air at Bharuch. At least my mom cured it with Aqeel's inhaler. Then, I went back to sleep peacefully.
