Had a nice afternoon strolling around Agra. After the annoyance of this morning, a good meal and buying a few bits of tat was just what the doctor ordered. We walked a little known road down the east side of the taj to the river. I tried to pursued the boat man to take us up river for a good view of the raj but apparently it's a security risk! I offered a big old bribe but the guys with the big machine guns didn't even blink. We will pop down there again later ...

Tilly wanted to see the taj mahal at sunrise! What a view! Quick breakfast then bed again for a couple, ready for more sight seeing.
Both agra fort and than the baby taj were both really great things to see today. The fort is so big and powerful, you get a real feel for how the moguls lived. The baby taj is so perfect and delicate, the build quality is amazing. I have a photo album of the day Inc the monkeys .... Love the monkeys!
First day in Agra today and we got lost walking to the Agra fort. But we found some puppies so it's all good. This place reminds me of the Disney film 'Aladdin', flat topped scruffy buildings just stuck up with no organisation all surrounding an amazing sight like the Tag Mahal.
