The Inevitable, The Incredible, The Taj Mahal

June 23, 2012

After nearly two years in India I finally got myself to the Taj Mahal. It took my good friend Jon visiting to get me to make the leap, and some rejigging of travel plans mixed with good old Jugaad to get us there, but we made it.

I can’t say I have ever been so mesmerized looking at a structure. It’s as beautiful as they say, as huge as you can imagine, and impossible to believe this was built before cranes and computer imagery. The capability of humans, and what we can achieve with inspiration, is unreal. I should really let it speak for itself.

      Thanks! Pictures don’t even do it justice. We literally stared at it for hours. Definitely go one day (Jan/Feb is a great time, not too hot!)
