Rumbling Roads

 It’s come to this. The group is falling like flies. What an a drive up here! It is very dry. But: we’ve seen our first tigers! A mother and cub. The cub chased after two wild boar to our immense delight. I swear Tilda Swinton swung by on another jeep just at that moment…

Agra

 An early morning (to beat the crowds) visit to the magnificent Taj Mahal in Agra. The intricate reliefs and semi-precious stone inlay work  are stunning. We also visited a workshop to see how the work is done. Twenty-two years it took to get the building done! The Red Fort where the imprisoned Shah Jahan died was also on the itinerary: he spent his last eight years in the bedroom (last picture), served only by his daughter, who saw to it that he was interred next to her mother in the mausoleum.

Humayun’s Tomb

The grounds at Humayun’s mausoleum are spectacular. I am struggling with the syncing between my phone and iPad.

So much to see and do. We do a long bus ride today, where I will try to organize my photos.

Mm: rather go with the knee lift- than the knee jerk reaction, unless you have splendid patellas: you don’t want to suffer from prepatellar bursitis, no.

P.S. Some acronyms are more unfortunate than others.
