we've been 'spotted'

the Tonga ride did load the poor horse a tad

gateways were always 'simple' structures

finally! ... the Taj

the Taj complex was huge

a perfect place to relax

forts were always interesting

One of Gilli's dreams came true when we visited the Taj Mahal in Agra. It was magnificent and she was ecstatic. It took 20000 workers over 22 years from 1631 to construct the opulent mausoleum and it remains impressive.

A tonga ride was less impressive but fun. The tough little pony used for our personal ride was called upon to haul not only the four of us but also the driver, our guide and a 'hanger on' the cart!

The Agra Fort built in 1666AD was another spectacular feature of the city which was the capital before the move of the political centre to Delhi in 1634.
