This weekend it was finally time for our road trip to the Taj Mahal - while we did take a minivan and not an elephant on the trip, at nearly 4 hours each way it felt at times as if we were traveling the old fashioned way.
We shared the road with every type of vehicle you can think of: cars, the Indian version of semi-trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, people, and more.....
The Taj was completely worth the 8 total hours I spent in the back seat of the van fighting car sickness. It is astounding in its sheer beauty and then you realize what it must have taken to create it over 400 years ago and then you realize that in this crazy place they've been able to maintain it so well, it is nearly unbelievable. I've seen some amazing sights in this world, but the Taj is one of the best.
