What the hell?

What in the hell kind of country closes its most important monument on a FRIDAY?

We got up at 5am and made the 1.5 hour journey to Agra on Friday to see the Taj Mahal.

The fucking thing was closed.
The best we could get was seeing it from a distance from a rooftop restaurant before making the trip back to Bharatpur.

We went again today, this time leaving at 4.30am.
It was open. And definitely worth making the return trip for.

People say seeing the Taj is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Well now we've seen it twice. (At least that's how I made Friday's failure seem ok in my mind)

Ha, we win.
