Our visit in Agra is very nice so far! Yesterday, we met our new host, Shalab, who took us for a dinner to a fancy restaurant, showed us his home and garden, took us to his school and office. He also showed us Taj Mahal from behind, from the garden where a black Taj Mahal was supposed to stand. We were positively surprised by Taj Mahal since we didn't really have high expectations. It was beautiful and very HOT! Moonsoon has finally left us alone... and as always you learn to appriciate something when its gone :) We feel very honored since Shalab are letting us stay at his hotel which is very nice. We even had a beer in the pool in the evening.
Today, we woke up early - 4.30 - to see Taj Mahal inside and the Red Fort. Hot, Sweaty...but Fun! In our opinion Taj Mahal is definitely worth its place as one of the seven miracles...
As you can see, we had some time to play around with pics :) :)
So far, so good!
Next: Varanasi, tonight by train!
