An early 5:30 wakeup call this morning to start our four hour bus journey to the Taj Mahal, Agra. When arriving in Agra, we stopped for some refreshments in the luxurious Trident Hotel.
While making our way to the Taj Mahal, excitement started to rise as this was a once in a lifetime experience! With heat most of us had never experienced before, it wasn’t long until our kurtas turned a shade darker in colour. Temperature reached 35 degrees however humidity levels made it seem much hotter! Although we were at one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Indian people were also amazed by us and we were approached for several pictures!
After a hot trip to the magnificent attraction, Taj Mahal, we were grateful for the air conditioning on the bus as we made our way back to the Trident Hotel for a beautiful meal adding to our Indian culture experience. To avoid further melting, our sightseeing of the Agra Fort took place within the confines of our air conditioned bus (Thank you Mr Aurora).
We are all geared up for our train journey to Dehradun in the morning with an early 4:30 start to begin our SNEHA teaching experience.
