We arrived in the evening, and loaded into another super tiny taxi to get to our hotel. Only there was a little problem. The hotel didn't exist. We drove around for what felt like hours and hours but was probably only two, asked a million people, nothing. We even found the building the place was supposed to be in, and still, no hotel. The location is a mystery even now.
On the bright side, there were other hotels open at 11pm and we did not have to stay squished in the taxi forever. Not that I'd mind a Donna pillow, but she might.
When our train arrived at the station, it hadn't even stopped before people were prying open the doors and climbing through the windows to get a seat. It was a madhouse. You'll be happy to know that we managed to get seats without going anywhere near the roof. You'll also be thrilled to know that the 4 hour trip cost 25 cents, which makes it the cheapest transportation I've ever taken.

The one sister had already been to the Taj and didn't feel the need to go again, so we pushed her out of the taxi at our hotel, left our bags with her and headed right over. Made it before closing time, what a relief.

It's very hot. Maybe monsoon season isnt the best time to travel to a country for the first time. Then again, I was freezing in Colorado, so it's a nice change.
So here I am, in India. Those of you who follow instagram will be aware of this, if you're just tuning in, surprise! Believe me, I'm as shocked as you.
This plan hatched months ago when a sister we met in Honduras called up to see if we wanted to hike to Everest Base Camp. Yes, THE Everest. You can't say no to that. Well, you might be able to, we couldn't. I don't know if anyone remembers this, but we ended up in Honduras with dreams of Nepal one day. And here we are, about to finally realize that dream. Wow, that sounded super cheesy.
Anyway, stay tuned. We are traveling nonstop until February, hoping to find our new home. Let's see what happens. First up, India!!!
