Contrary to what most tourists do, I recommend staying in Agra, India for at least one night before seeing the Taj Mahal. That way you can witness the extravagant weddings-on-wheels that traverse the city at night. Music, dancing and wild colors paint the bustling streets as couples descend from all over India to proclaim their undying love.
Built by the blood and sweat of the living to commemorate the regius dead, the Taj Mahal strikes the heart with two and a half tons of majestic beauty.
It’s official! In February of 2018, I will be traveling across northeastern India for 11 days. My plane lands in Delhi and departs from Calcutta, which means I’ll be training, bussing, biking or hitchhiking through the following cities: Jaipur, Agra and Varanasi. If anyone has advice of where to go, how to get there, what to see, etc, I’d greatly appreciate it. This is my first trip to India and I hope to make it an unforgettable one. Namaste.
