The Beautiful Taj Mahal

Location: Agra, India

We got the train from Delhi to Agra specifically to see the Taj Mahal, which was the most beautiful sight in India. But we managed to squeeze in a few more things by hiring a car and driver called Charlie "I want Commission!"

Here's my Dad with his sexy slippers on to walk inside the Baby Taj. Isn't he very colour coordinated!

This was our first stop and is known as the Baby Taj.

Uncle Festa and I try to pick up the real Taj Mahal. You don't have to pay 750 rupees to view it from the gardens so we took advantage of this "freebie". The same guy who built the Taj Mahal started building the Black Taj but ir never got finished. The remains are behind us.

I look on as some guy desparate for a 10 rupee tip helps my Dad down a few steps.

"Cheap camel ride for you sir" the guy said to my Dad. Could he not see the cast on his leg.....stupid man!!!

Dad wondered off without his stick so i decided to put on a little performance whilst we waited for sunset....where's a top hat when you need one?

I try on the cast and try for some sympathy.....nothing!!

The Taj at Sunset.....built as a shrine for his wife.

Me and Dad get the first tourist free pick of the day!
