We are sitting there listening to a musician playing a Hammer Dulcimer (if you don't know what that is you haven't been paying attention).

After a couple mor hours and a tour through the small museum that was almost deserted we left to visit the red fort. The red fort is another famous landmark of Agra and so we walked across the drawbridge paid our horrendous over inflated tourist prices and headed up the hill to see what all the fuss was ...
