One of the reasons why a trip to India is so worthwhile. Or why a trip to India is never complete without going to Agra

I planned to spend my 43rd birthday here by taking shots of the sunrise, but my spiritual adviser dissuaded me from going to Agra, leaving Delhi shortly after midnight and alone, for safety reasons. I visited with Fr. George two days after. Having seen the Taj Mahal up close, despite the scorching heat that burned my skin (and I was already wearing SPF70 sun screen)  and the menacing beads of sweat on my forehead, has got to be one of the best days of my life.
