The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ― Albert Einstein

Today I am without words.
We left Delhi and traveled four hours by expressway to Agra. The city of Agra, the Agra Fort, our beautiful hotel with a view of the Taj Mahal from our rooms, and the Taj Mahal itself were incredible. Having always been at the top of my bucket list, the Taj Mahal far exceeded my already high expectations. No photo I had ever seen could ever capture the emotion I felt being in the presence of such magnificence. Our guide, Rishi, a native of Agra, knew all of the angles, and some cool photo tricks.

I can say no more.
We return for sunrise tomorrow. After that, Jaipur.
