Delhi to Agra
The trip to Agra was quite the experience. First we had to
get up REALLY early (4:30 a.m. pickup at the hotel) for our flight to Delhi.
There we boarded a bus for the four-hour ride southwest to Agra, where the Taj
Mahal is located. But heavy traffic in and around Delhi lengthened the tip to
more like six hours. Since I was taking so many pictures, they let me sit up
with the driver. The pictures that follow represent a reasonable sample of the
sights that we saw along the road.
Our guide told us that we would be passing through "primitive villages" along the way. Boy, was he right! I hope that these pictures will give you a faithful sense of the deep countryside in modern India.
