Agra

Today we were off the Agra land of the great Taj Mahal.
Last night my driver of so kindly and drunkly decided he was sick of answering questions about my tattoo and made a fix to it;

I stopped at a resturant half way there that was suppose to be really good to match the expensive price tag but I was massively disappointed. When I say expensive I mean it it was 1000 rupees aka $22.22, usually you can get a good lunch or dinner for 100-250rupees aka $2.20-5.50. And this food was disgusting!! its not that my standereds have gone way up it just that this food was gross. the rice was soggy the dalh flavorless. needless to say I was mad.

We stopped at another summer palace of a king this one not as grand but still cool. There we a bunch of statue and carvings that had been ripped out of the temple down the road, that had been placed here for display.

The drive was long and we made one other stop before we got there. This was yes you guessed it another fort, and believe it or not all these forts look different. Fatehpur Sikri, is where I was, I hired a guide this time and he was worth the 100rupees.

So I see all the time these vehicles full of people like a rickshaw with 14 people or cars and trucks with so many you cant count them but I never am fast enough to get a picture of it, so this is the best one I got.

HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA! That truck is like sideways! I'm sure we have no idea how massive those forts are. That was always the problem I had in Europe, how to show the scale of the buildings. Looks so cool steph!
