After a few hours sleep and our first breakfast in India, team Bangor hit the town to buy our teaching clothes. The girls were spoiled for choice with an unbelievable array of colours and styles to choose from, but eventually everyone emerged with a selection of kurtas (tunics), leggings, trousers and dupattas (scarves). Meanwhile, the male contingent of the team enjoyed an authentic street shopping experience which equipped with a rainbow of kurtas and light coloured trousers.
A visit to the Gandhi Smitri museum provided a restful end to the afternoon, with historical inspiration provided by Mr Moreland. Following a feast of chicken curry, paneer, daal, rice and naan, we collapsed into bed for a very welcome early night.
A very early start on Saturday morning proved entirely worthwhile when we experienced one of the Seven Wonders of the World in the white marble of the Taj Mahal, followed by a sunset visit to the ancient sandstone of Agra Fort.
