Taj Mahal/ Fatehpur Sikri / Jaipur

Up at 5:15am, out at 5:45am, in line at the Taj Mahal at 6:30am.   And all well worth it.  The sunrise was beautiful and the Taj looked surreal, so very peaceful, grand, and majestic.  There were fewer people than the day before since it was early.  We took around 2 hours to see it all again, and then headed for breakfast.

After we continued toward Jaipur with a stop at an overpriced restaurant again for lunch.  No more restaurants recommended by our driver J.  We got to Jaipur and checked in to Sunder Palace Guesthouse – which is a treat.  It is very clean, spacious, and well situated.  We had a great dinner on the rooftop terrace, caught up a bit on blogs, and now are ready to go to bed and rest up for a long day tomorrow.
