After flying into Delhi, we drove 4 hours to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal. I have never seen such poverty. The slums go on for miles connecting towns. I am not sure anything can prepare you for India. It is beautiful, but it is so sad to see how so many live here. I wasn't quite prepared for the amount of livestock freely roaming the streets either.
Today is India's Republic Day, so I can hear the festivities from my room. I have my own room for the next couple of days, and you can see the Taj Mahal from my window. It is beautiful. I just came from the concierge desk and they are sending me a "distress kit" since I have no luggage.
For now I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of Hannah!
