Leaving Jaipur

imageJanuary 2, 2014
On the road at 5 am. The driver does not speak any English and me no Hindi. This might be a problem. It’s a 4 hour drive to Agra to see the Taj Mahal and it’s so cold that people have outside fires going to keep warm, adding to the pollution. I’m surprised how flat the countryside is, only a few red jagged hills made of sandstone with mostly fields along the way.
It was VERY exciting to see the Taj Mahal. It is absolutely breathtaking. Well worth the effort to getting there. I had a young man to guide me through it. It all worked out perfectly. He was also able to do a little translating with the driver. Back to Delhi by 5 pm, making this one long day.
Tomorrow will mostly be travel time to Bohdgaya.
