What window are we going through today ? The arched window. Lets count boys and girls, how many towers ? None, two, four.
Look children it’s as light as a feather!
Is it Magic ?
Of course it’s magic, it’s a love story, little to do with religion or war.
Did it live up to he hype ?
Not really, impressed but not enchanted. We would need Walt Disney or rich Arabs for that.
I asked my guide Mohammed why there was minimum lighting inside, was told this is the way it is supposed to be especially with the early morning pink light. Says it all really, this is grubby India not Dubai or Florida.
Worth it ? Has to be, but feel a little stung. 6500 rupees for the 9 hour round trip ( £70 ) but then 600 for tolls, 1000 entry and 1000 guide. When I tipped my driver 500 he looked disappointed, took the edge off it somewhat.
Traveling and staying off the booze.
