Morning Begins With the Taj Mahal

Today we got up pretty early so we could get to the Taj Mahal right when it opened, a little after sunrise.  We'd caught a couple glimpses of it when we were driving around Agra or looking out at it from the Agra Fort yesterday, but nothing compared to being there and seeing it up close for the first time.  It was so surreal to be there because I've seen so many pictures of it and heard so much about it.
I still can't believe I can say I've been to one of the seven wonders of the world.  It was also really funny to see monkeys walking around there, and chipmunks scampering all over the gardens.  We learned a lot from our tour guide and had plenty of time to walk around inside and outside of the Taj.  I'm extremely blessed to have been able to have this experience.

After leaving, we went back to our hotel and had breakfast, then had a long drive back to Dehli.  We couldn't see much out the window on the drive except for the agricultural area past the freeway we were on.

Our car also crossed paths with some water buffalo a couple times.

Now we're back at our hotel preparing for our next few days in Delhi.
Keep us in your prayers.
