Headed for the Taj - misty eyed

5am departure for the 0615 Super Express train to Agra (195 km).

What first appeared as early morning mist has turned into pea-soup fog, the likes of which I have not seen for decades. A one hour 57 minute journey expands to over four hours, our Super Express reduced to tentative rumbling.

Concerns that we might not see the Taj unless it was within touching distance dissolved as the sun burned through the fog.

Simply breathtaking.

Perfectly proportioned.

Glittering in the bright sunshine.

It is simply stunningly beautiful.

Just like the last time we were here, 27 years ago.
