So I went to the Taj Mahal yesterday, and it definitely lived up to my expectations. I just loved hearing the story of the King building this in the name of love. I'm sure I got ripped off a few times, as I'm not familiar with the currency yet, but I had an excellent guide, bought a really cool traveling backgammon set (I'm obsessed with the game) and took pictures with about 1000 Indian people! One person would ask for me to be in their picture, and then a line would form. I think a lot of people would be bothered by this, but I'm used to it as I am the rare breed of blonde in Asia, so I just smiled away.
PS- Sorry I look less than spectacular, I had had three hours sleep, a 4:45am wake up call, and a 4 hour car ride.
