TAJ MAHAL!!

sunny 28 °C

Okay so today i was up bright and early aka 6:15 to go to the Taj Mahal. I made the quick walk down the street to the gate entrance and then quickly with anticipation the 1km up the road. I happen to pass this cute little monkey sitting on a bench like a person and was like I need a picture of him! But upon closer inspection I seen that he was infact giving himself a hand job..at that moment I knew we really did come from monkeys and no if fact men havent changed much. lol

This is the first gate you must go through, of course to build up your excitment.

So there are 3 entrances to the Taj Mahal meaning there are 3 exits as well. In my daze of seeing everything I went out the wrong one....
It turns out that getting lost was actually good. When I got back to the wrong exit I came out of I had to talk to the gaurd for a good 5 minutes trying to explain that I didnt want to go see the Taj Mahal again but that I jsut wanted to go out the right exit so I could get back to my hotel! He kept say one entry per ticket and I kept say but I just need to go through!! haha finally I made it through and was hotel bound.

After the taj Mahal and breakfast I went to see it from the back across the river a cool view quite. I then had slow cups of chai tea with the locals while waiting for my camera battery to charge.
