Hey All!

So we finally arrived in India yesterday - we were a little anxious about meeting the tour guide/driver - with our luck we thought we'd get some incomprehesible weirdo but luckily the guy we got seems quite genuine and earnest - at least so far...

Anyway, we practically started the tour as soon as we touched ground, we saw most if not all the important sites in Delhi - Qutab Minar, India Gate, Gandhi' s Samadi etcetra. OUr tour guide (Zyaeed) was a laugh - (a uni student who arrived late after an all night bender with his mates).

We left forAgra this morning - took us four and a half hours by car, (Dipti fell asleep - which she seems to be able to do everywhere) After a seriously bum-numbing experience in the car, we arrived at Agra. We had a lot of time on our hands so we managed to some shopping - each of us bought an elephant made of marble both of which are kinda cute.

After we ate, rested and recuperated, (Dipti wants to let u know that we did a bit of yoga, but it was in actual fact, us doing the rolly polly on uor beds erm, nope we were not drunk).

We then headed to see the Taj Mahal - having beaten of several annoying children selling things and guides trying to, well guide us, we settled upon a guy who was our age (Naresh) to show us the site and tell us a little about it. He was really sweet.

We have been practicing our Hindi - everyone's astonished at the fact that we can speak it - but then they cant seem to figure out that we're indian either...silly people.

More later, we're getting attacked by a giant wasp....ahhhh.

Nisha and Dips

In good health two days in... :P
