The Taj Mahal!
Greetings from Agra, India! Today after a rather strenuous night on the sleeper train, we arrived at our hotel and were all thrilled to discover it was truly luxurious and clean. We were rushed off to a late breakfast/brunch and soon after, we began our journey to the long awaited visit to the Taj. From afar, some of us initially thought the Taj was only as much as our postcards and pictures. However, as we began walking towards it we realized how momentous and beautiful it is in person. The entire building is made of stunning white marble and is embellished with semi-precious stones. In person, these beauties are beyond explanation. Apparently, some king decided to build it in memory of his beloved wife. It made me think, "hmm I want someone to build me a palace out of marble and gems to prove their love to me!". After a guided tour we were given free time to get all our cheesy pictures taken. It was quite the sight and we can't wait to take your breath away with all the pictures we took!
