Agra

Day 15 - 23. January 2009

This day I went up by 5 am to catch the train to Agra at 6:15am. Faiz wanted to join me but the train was sold out and he could not get a ticket. The interior of this train was like a German Intercity Train and breakfast was included.
The train went very fast and at 8:15am I arrived at Agra and my first destination was the Taj Mahal.

In the afternoon I finished visiting Taj Mahal and Fort Agra and went to Akbar's Mausoleum because I had some time left for my evening train back to Delhi.

In the evening I went back to Delhi and was very tired after this long day. The city of Agra is very dirty and everybody tries to sell you something. I can recommend to stay in Delhi and go to Agra just for a day.

Day 16 - 24. January 2009

The morning I met Faiz to watch and share photos and listen to Indian music. In afternoon we went to the cinema in a huge shopping mall and watched the Oscar nominated Bollywood movie "Slumdog Millionaire" which was showed in English version.
In the early evening I went to Old Delhi Train Station to catch the night train to Jaisalmer. This time I went on class AC2tier and it was very quiet and comfortable.
