Agra means one thing, that place of a billion photos, the Taj Mahal. I swear camera's must be sick of the site of that building. 750 rupees to get in!! Thats about twice as much as we've been spending in a day (750rs is about 10pounds). As much as I'd love to say that its all overrated, its not. Theres something mesmeric about the Taj. I think its because we see so many photos of it. Speaking of photos, I seem to have more of the Taj than the rest of the trip put together. The touts don't miss a trick inside either, trying to charge 100 RS for a photo WITH OUR OWN CAMERA! We only gave the thieving git 50.Everything is so much more expensive here but I think that has a lot to do with the wealthier tourists that are around, people on exclusive tours and daytrippers on excursion from package holidays in Goa. There are some tranquil escapes though, we had dinner in a tasty rooftop restaurant directly overlooking the Taj and we spent the afternoon on the Taj nature walk, a developing nature reserve (with very little nature, lots of sand!) but it was quiet and had great views of.....yep you guessed it. It's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle to a peaceful retreat. A little like our hotel with nice gardens and bungalow rooms from which I write on the comfiest bed yet with a big plush pillow (a first!). Tomorrow we aim to prove that Agra isn't a one trick pony and want to totally avoid the 'T word'.
