We arrived in India late on Saturday night after a long but mostly uneventful travel day, although the screaming child on the Newark to New Delhi flight was nearly record-breaking. Who knew a child could actually scream for 13+ hours straight?!? I certainly remained contentedly naive to this fact until yesterday. Live and learn as they say. After a sound night of sleep, we spent today touring Delhi and seeing the sights. It is a beautiful, humble, receptive, inviting, delicious, warm, fragrant, humid, friendly, crowded place. So far, it meets or even exceeds expectations. Tomorrow we are off to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, which was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial to his 3rd wife who died giving birth to her 14th child. So, this mausoleum from the mid-1600s was certainly well-deserved. More pictures from our day in Delhi available by clicking the picture above. Namaste.
right on, Jim! looking fwd to following your trip via the internets….
