Arriving in Agra

Hey guys! This is Zahra. After arriving in Agra yesterday by train, we visited the Taj Mahal, and got to learn about its history and beautiful architecture. We learned about how everything that is a part of the monument is symmetrical, except for the two tombs inside, and we got to see the illusion of the Taj Mahal getting smaller as we approached it. We also got the chance to buy some amazing jewelry at the Maya Hotel. Something that I appreciated about the jewelry was that it was all handmade and so authentic. This morning, we were lucky enough to see the Taj Mahal again at sunrise and gain a bit more information on life in Agra, especially for women. At the moment, we are taking a 4 hour van ride back to Delhi.
