we woke up very early morning to see Taj Mahal in the sunrise but when we got to the gate the biggest que was waiting for us:( we waited an hour to get in so we missed the sunrise but never mind... when we got to see the building i really thought im gonna cry it is soooo beautiful.as u can see it on the pictures..breathtaking. we were walking around, went inside and saw the tomb of Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal for his 3rd wife, Mumtaz Mahal who died while giving birth to their 14th child. Her tom is next to Shah's. Amazing love story.. where is the pover of love there days?
i think if anybody want to come to India this building is a must see.
we stayed just a few mins walk from the East gate of the Taj Mahal in hotel Sheela. nice place,with birds singing, off the busy road and confortable rooms.
after we went to tha Taj Nature park which loode quite nice compaire to what we would have expected. we saw peecock, ants, trees, flowers and an amazing view to the Taj Mahal at sunset. oh im in love with this Building!!:)
Next day early in the morning we too a train to Jaipur. on the train we had sleeping tickets so we tried to cath up on sleeeps :) the toilet on board was something i would not like to describe .....but the pic ll tell.
In Jaipur we also had a family waiting for ( couch surfing) us but we called them n they lived very far away from the central so we went to find a hostel. and we found the most amazing place called Vinayak Guest House run by a family: Mum, Dad, their son Raman and his granmother.
we had the nicest hospitality,clean and big room, home cooked indian food, henna and they were just so keen to make sure we haveing a nice time!! so thanks for them and i highly recomend this place to stay.
secon day we took taxi organized by Raman to Amber fort which is an amazing temple sitting on a hill. we walked around for 2 hours n we still didn t see all of it.:)
The taxi driver took us to other temples which we just looked form the outside then took us home, really good day. we were so tired, we needed a good sleep.
3rd day in Jaipur we just walked around the city,talked with local people. they are mostly nice but one thing we have enough of and thats the endless riksaw, bazar,shop offers we ge everywhere we go. its so exhausting saying ' no' all the time.
tomorrow morning we ll take train to Pushkar so till then hope u all ok, reading my blog and please write comments so i know u reading it and im not just writing to myself:):):)
