Today’s activity was to visit the Taj Mahal in Agra. The Taj Mahal was stunning, as expected.  This is a big tourist attraction and people from all over were coming to see it.  It’s very exciting, and this was also the day that the staring and pictures were the worst.  It was uncomfortable at the time but it was put into perspective when someone mentioned that people get excited to come here and it adds to the excitement when you see people from America traveling to India to see the Taj Mahal. It just adds to the fact that this is an amazing piece of architecture worth paying a visit to by people from all over the world.  P1060198View of the Taj Mahal from Agra Fort.  I included this picture because I imagine this is a similar view that the emperor had of the Taj Mahal during his final days.  Its weird to out yourself in someones shoes like this.  I didnt know there was two be another Taj Mahal where he would be buried, but they never finished construction because his 3rd son killed off his brothers and took the throne.  The emperor was on house arrest for the remainder of his life, left to stare at his Taj Mahal.
