In a moment, we wake up in Delhi and head to the Qutb Minar, where the schools were, and steel column of Ashoka.

Not alone, as you might remember:

And some are better organized for the visit

Days after, we are in Vrindavan and return from the ghat, while they return home from school

The Red Fort is the picture place for everyone in Agra, the Taj Mahal behind them

On the way to the west, we stop in Balaji for a cup of tea and a visit to the shrine

Very jealous Alf. India is such an overwhelming place; totally mad (in a good way) but still mostly endearing. Those glass soft drink bottles were a bit of a worry though. Who knows how many times they'll be re-filled and re-used...

wish I could say I never had a problem in India, but I was there long enough on business that I did manage to get sick a few times anyway... loved it anyway... and great to see pics from there-- also nice to see YOU in a picture which we hardly ever do and I LOVE the pic of the guys in Rome-- I don't know if they look familiar because I have actually seen them around and about or because they are just so...
