The Taj Mahal

Words cannot describe the wonder we saw today!  Our guide has his degree in Indian history (referred by local friends) and debunked many myths we had previously been told:
1. There was never any plan for a black Taj
2. The King (Maharaja) did not chop off the arms/hands of the workers

Please enjoy the unedited photos time to straighten and crop anything (same as all of the other blog photos...will have to wait until I am back in Denver)

After the Taj we went to the hotel for our breakfast and were on the road back to Delhi by noon.  Tomorrow is Varanasi to see the Ganges river (and meet up with Anneliese, Rafal and Kazu).
