Day 8: Taj Mahal

We left our hotel at 3am heading to Taj Mahal. During the journy we celebrated the birthday of Moritz with cake and singing. The reason for the early waking up was the idea reaching Taj Mahal in the sunrise. It turned out the ride takes longer than expected. Finally we spent around 6 hours on the road. Before visiting Taj Mahal, we stopped at Fort Agra. Fort Agra, which was built in 15 century, was the kings palast. In the middle of the fort is a temple where you can place wishes. Not only did Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy placed their wishes in the temple also we did. To save some time we decided to have lunch in the bus.

Our next stop was Taj Mahal, we were all impressend by the size of this huge and historical buidling. Our very expericed tourguide told us all facts about the history and showed us the best spots for taking pictures.

The time went by and we were in a hurry to see the last monument planed for today which is called the Red Fort. After this long day we were all tired and even Riccardo couldn’t make it to the club and went to bed.
