Taj Mahal, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India

I’ve just come from the Taj Mahal. Natraj, Dragos, Sankid and myself made the chaotic journey by road from New Delhi in Sankid’s car. The Taj Mahal was good but the personal highlight of the trip so far was staying at the coffee plantation in Chikmagalur.

Dragos and I flew IndiGo Airlines from Bangalore to Delhi on Friday whilst Natraj took Kingfisher. On Saturday Sankid very kindly drove us around the city, showing us the Red Fort, mosque, tombs, Indian Parliament, etc, before we went for a much needed massage.

The touts, the noise and pollution haven’t been too bad and nobody has got ‘Delhi Belly’ yet. India’s colour and vibrancy are legendary and have kept their status up.

Tomorrow Dragos and I plan to hit Rajasthan. I have shot hundreds of photos and look forward to posting the best ones upon return to Australia.
