Monument of Love

"How someone could love their beloved so much that their dedication to them became one of the wonders of the world."

It is Friday evening here and have a bit of time before I go out for a walk around the neighborhood.   Today we finally received our curtains, the internet is up and running, Luna has her "run at the speed of light across the rooms", and I am blasting loudly some Slipknot, so yes now it feels like home.

So before I step out, I want to quickly write about a beauty that I got the pleasure to witness two weeks ago.  There are no words to describe this breathtaking site.  I have seen it on tv and never imagined I would have an opportunity to see it in person.  

We took flight out to Delhi, spent a day there site seeing, which I will write more at a later date.  The next day we took the 3 hour drive out to Agra, and we were greeted by the magnificent site of the Taj Mahal.

The site was crowded, but being tourists, we were able to skip the long lines.  It felt like we had the FastPass at Disneyland.

From the entrance I could sense the magnitude of the tomb, and as we continued to walk towards it, the building would expand exponentially.  I was amazed learning that the entire site is symmetrical!

I will keep it simple and say that I was in awe.  We were advised that if we have the opportunity again, to spend the night in Agra and get up to see the sunrise, sunset, and/or moonrise with the Taj Mahal as the backdrop.  

Alright, time to go for a quick walk before sunset.

Till next time....

This is the mosque on the left side of the Taj Mahal.  In order to keep the symmetry, a second building was built on the other side, an identical replica but it's empty inside.

Awesome idea M&M to give us a little taste of the beauty that you are seeing there. I am glad that you are adjusting well there. Lucknie said hi. Say hi to Luna too.
