A few photos

Well we've a few minutes spare here at an internet cafe so I'll try to upload a couple of photos if we've enough time.
These are of the Taj Mahal in Agra. It really was spectacular to see. Crazy busy with tourists though. Foss saw Julia Roberts too for a few minutes. I missed her though because I was taking a photo of him. It's unbelievable to see all these massive monuments, forts and temples that they built here so long ago. Almost every town has some ancient ruin, though sadly in a lot of cases they are ruins. In Bundi the other day we got a guided tour of the fort there and the guide was showing us a door that had been inlaid with ivory but because its not guarded by night people come and steal it. You could also see these holes in the walls of one of the rooms where there had been carved elephants and they had been stolen recently. Such a pity, but when you see the poverty in some places you can kind of understand why someone might do that.

Hope to update again soon, Jan and Foss
