February 17 - We flew from Varanasi to Delhi and then we had a bus ride to Agra. It was to be about 5-6 hours and ended up being almost 8 hours. The traffic as we approached Agra was almost incomprehensible. It was stupendously awful and made our trip longer by 2 hours. We arrived at our hotel (the Oberoi Amarvilas) where each room has a view of the Taj Mahal! Since we arrived at 10PM and the Taj Mahal is not lit at night, we didn’t see it this evening. Everyone was exhausted so we all went to our rooms and went to sleep.
