In love...

We just got back from a little trip to Rajastan, visiting Jaipur and Agra. Everyone goes to Agra to see the Agra Fort (photos to come) and the Taj Mahal. I knew the Taj Mahal was a beautiful building, but I thought I'd seen enough photos to not be too impressed in person. Boy was I wrong! It's an amazingly beautiful building and definitely worth a trip to Agra to see it. Seeing it is like falling in love, you can't believe it's for real. We arrived really early in the morning to avoid all the crowds. It was a hazy morning, but as the sun warmed, the haze wore off a bit and we got to see the Taj in all is splendor.


  1. oh I'm glad you loved it!! one of these days I'll get there!!

  2. They say the architect fell in love with the Emperor's daughter and built it with her in mind, rather than the widower's lost wife. Leave it to an architect to forge his own agenda!! I can't wait to see it someday.
