Wonder-ful

We visited the Taj Mahal on our last day in India.  It was completely worth the flight from Pune to Delhi and the drive from Delhi to Agra.  It is indescribably, unbelievably beautiful.  I understand now why it is one of the wonders of the world.  Words cannot explain how amazing it was to see the Taj Mahal for the first time as we passed through the gateway structure and the tomb structure came into view.


This is the gateway structure though which you must pass to get to the gardens and tomb.  As you pass through it, the white marble of the tomb suddenly comes into view.












It is breathtaking to see the tomb for the first time, and both words and photos fail me.
I'll let this photo speak for itself.

Just us.


























I wish my words and my photos hadn't failed me in this post, but if you ever have the opportunity to visit, go.

I'll wrap up my last thoughts from India in my next post, and please send any questions my way too.
