Agra and the Taj.
My first day in Agra, I arrive early in the morning and find a little hotel near the Taj Mahal. I was looking for a place with a rooftop cafe or restaurant, somewhere I could get some photos and was lucky enough to find this little spot!
The night we returned from our trek in the desert we found out there was a wedding about to take place…right next door!
We were invited (along with what felt like the entire city) to participate in walking the groom throughout the streets, while he rode on the back of a very posh horse!
Check out the kids carrying the lamps, they were powered by another fella who dragged a gas generator on a two wheeled cart!
The sun wakes us up and it’s time to pack up our camp. Our last day in the desert and we make way to a small village to supply up before we head back to civilization!
Desert Trek, Day One!
Like I said last time, I had met up with a solid group: a trio of fellow Canucks, A great gal from the U.K. and a pair of French guys. We jumped into a truck and booked it out of the city to where we met our camels!
From there it was off into the desert!
