Agra

Travelling on the roads always provides lots of entertainment. There are always overcrowded vehicles and our driver pointed out a beautifully decorated Mercedes

We stopped at the highly decorated temple for Krishna with all its murals both inside and outside. Then further on along the road to Agra At another palace with an internal waterhole and rows and rows of seating for the families.

Our thoughts were on the Taj Mahal once we arrived in Agra. Unfortunately it was foggy and our guide suggested not going to the Taj early and starting at the Agra fort. Apparently it is clear skies in the summer but when it is very hot.We went to the fort but I was distracted by the getting to the Taj Mahal…

Once we finally got to the Taj it was wonderful of course. We chose to walk instead of getting a camel ride. It was foggy initially but the fog cleared a lot and all of my expectations were realised.
Our guide also suggested the photo of Paul holding up the Taj. Everyone does the same photos when you are there so noone feels that silly!!!!!
