This was my second time seeing the Taj Mahal.
The first time, I went with my Mom and there was a huge rain storm right before, where the water flooded up to our knees when we were standing in line. I was so disappointed that it rained even though it had been scorcing hot and sunny just a few hours before. In fact, I was complaining that seeing the Taj Mahal in the high noon would make for too sunny a photograph. Then it rained, and I stopped complaining. Luckily, it stopped pouring right as we got through and it was even more magnificent seeing the Taj Mahal glisten with rain and in the breaking sunlight.
This time around it didn't rain, it was scorching hot and it was around noon, but I didn't dare complain. I was ecstatic to be able to see it again with my husband. I couldn't get enough of the people with their reactions and their photo-taking. It really is an amazing wonder of the world.
Part I and Part II if you missed them.
