Goodbye Jaipur, hello AGRA!

Click here to go to first India Post.

Saying goodbye to our suite and possibly our last really comfortable nights sleep, we headed out bright and early to the train station, catching a few snoozes on the way.






We only had one day in AGRA, leaving that evening, so we dropped our stuff off at a hotel renting a room for the day and headed to the Taj Mahal!






What visit wouldn’t be complete without a dorky tourist photo…


It was a really nice day out and tons of other tourists, but it was amazing and much bigger than I could imagine. What some people do for love! – If you don’t realize what I mean, check out why the Taj was built in the above link.

Leaving the Taj, we opted out of the Camel rides




and took a tempo to the Agra Fort – another day of high foreigner entry fees, but hey, it’s only once in a lifetime, huh? The Agra Fort is in the middle of the town (as is the Taj Mahal).








More splendid manicured gardens, and ornate buildings,





beautiful views,





And lots of monkeys!
