Two other faculty members and I took a taxi from campus to Agra on Friday, February 6. We left campus at 9AM, stopped for lunch at 12PM and (finally) arrived Agra around 7:30PM. Our driver took the "old road" instead of the new expressway. We went straight through some towns and encountered plenty of traffic jams along the way. I saw a LOT more local color than I was anticipating.

The food is beautiful, and we have a very nice night. All up for Dale and I with drinks is 1800 rupees, $36 for 2 people at a pretty up market place, I think good value. Dales face is a little red, ...
... third frisk! This was beginning to get a bit surreal. Finally we were in - we were only allowed up to the red stone platform near the archway. The Taj was in silhouette in front of us, and the moon was high in the sky behind us...I'm thinking that the fab Taj shots with the huge moon behind it were a result of Photoshop.
Getting a decent shot of the Taj was no mean feat - super high ISOs, focusing blind (since I could see nothing through the viewfinder or through live ...
