So Mummy had this idea that since she was going to be in Delhi, she would go to the Taj Mahal – and this time she would have her “Darcy” with her. The last time she visited the “monument of love” she was “alone” 🙂
Up early and she and Impostor set off on the long drive to Agra by 6am. The sun had just risen.When they got to Agra, they couldn’t drive any closer. They had a choice to go on a trishaw, a horse drawn carriage or some sort of tuk-tuk. They chose the trishaw (poor man!)This is Jasleen – she’s the hotel’s Lifestyle Host and she went along with them. And people stopped to the streets wondering if I am a real dog! 🙂But as they went through security checks, she was told not dogs allowed! But she’s not a dog, she’s a cardboard cut-out!!! No animals or toys allowed. But she’s not a toy!!! No! they said. Reluctantly, Mummy left Impostor with security. So she again took the photo at the Taj Mahal on her own. 🙁 Hey! She sees a dog – a real life start dog right at the Taj! Look! It’s a real four-legged dog! SO Mummy took a photo of it. And when they were exiting and collected Impostor from security, she showed them the photo – and they laughed sheepishly. Not giving up, Mummy sneaked this photo at the end – again some other security was telling her – no animals allowed! Again she showed this security the photo of the dog. And he laughed and walked away!!!!!!! Oh well, there’s something called photoshop and the hotel staff kindly made Mummy’s dream come true. They put me/Impostor in the photo!!! Voila!
May’s comment: The last time I was at the Taj was about twenty years ago. This time it took us less than three hours to get there in the early morning sans traffic on the new freeway. The last time we drove past cows and people on unpaved roads.
