In the early morning we arrived in Agra with the night train and Hans didn't feel well. With a quick risk jaw tour we arrived in the budget area of Agra which is also near the Taj Mahal. After some searching actions of Francis for a good hotel we checked in one of them. At the hotel Hans went straight to bed to have ...
... which was Ru4200. It was a hefty price but I was happy in the end. I am glad I got it and hope that Leonard likes it as well. I inserted a video of the piece, feel free to comment. In my giddiness, I took a picture with the artist that manufactured this piece, he was an intelligent looking guy. I told him that I will treasure his work.

As well as culture and architecture we had time for a little spot of carpet shopping. After a tour of the local hand knotting carpet workshop we got the chance to walk barefoot over the carpets both wool and silk and all we can say is wow - who knew that carpets could be so soft.
Fingers crossed when our carpets are finished and sent over in May that they live up to our memory!
