    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

    Then on to the old Delhi, and the Jamaa Masjid

    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

    Stunning place. India is right up there amongst the best places to photograph, although the culture shock may overwhelm some.
