Agra was the dirtiest city I have ever been to. Dirt piling up at the sides of the streets with pigs, cows and dogs rummaging through it for food. Monkeys are everywhere.
I need to find a disguise soon before I go crazy. People take pictures with us, of us and stare at us with evil eyes. In China people stared also, but it was far less intimidating. Today our train was three hours delayed, locals actually gathered around us to stare their eyes out. I wish they would smile every now and then, it would make it less intense. But they don't. So far we have not often been met with friendliness.
Jack left me alone at the station for five minutes and suddenly lots of people came at me - talking and getting way too close. Suffered a mini panic attack, Jack knows not to do that again!
Apart from all of that, the Taj Mahal really was spectacular and made the visit worth while.
