We have seen many amazing sites on the tour but it feels very special to once again visit the Taj Mahal at Agra. We avoided the early start time because of the morning mist, and waited to see the beautiful marble mausoleum in the bright sunshine. The architecture looks so prominent against the crisp blue sky, you can see why it’s such an important world heritage site.
Up close, you can examine the precious stones embedded into the marble, and watch them glint in the bright light. To be honest, without your sunglasses on, it’s almost impossible to see anything because of the strong glare from the marble floor and walls.
A special thank you to Mr Oakley for fixing my glasses before the trip, I would have struggled without them.
An excellent few hours; I will post a few detail shots of the site when I get back to the UK. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to the famous location, to experience a special part of India’s cultural heritage.
Our last leg of the journey now back to Delhi, another five hours of adrenalin packed Indian driving. I don’t think I will ever complain about British roads and drivers again. Well not a few days at least.
I am going to set myself a challenge to photograph the vehicle with the most people hanging off it.
We should also thank our official snack sponsors on the coach journeys; Ritz crackers and Pringles. They have kept us going during our time on the road and help maintain moral!
