Today was phenomenal.
I want to write a thousand thoughts about Agra (and I will), but first, the Taj Mahal:
We’re snoozing in Agra tonight (in beds, even, for the first time since we went to sleep on Saturday night in Oklahoma City!) Tomorrow morning we’ll hit the road at 8 a.m. for a 6-hour drive to northwest India and officially enter District 3090.
Our original plans to take a train from Agra to Punjab were cancelled. Instead of riding the rails, our driver, Sirinder, stayed with us in Agra and will take us north. We think we understand correctly that he’ll be our driver for the entire month. He speaks almost no English. We speak absolutely no Hindi. … So what I’m saying is that I’m hoping that we can learn from each other over the next four weeks.
