  12. The Taj Mahal is just so stunning. I think for sure if I visited India that I would take that in. - Some very interesting statuary there. Not sure about the Erotica stuff but the other's would be something I would enjoy seeing.

  19. Stunning photos. I hope I can see some of these places one day. I don't know if it is the angle of the photo or if the Golden Temple is leaning (like the Leaning Tower of Pisa).

  26. I just love all these photos. Since I retired from 21 years of forensic nursing, in San Francisco's massive cuts to Public Health, I have spent 12 months in India - since Dec 2011. I wish my finances allowed me to travel all over but I am doing little by little. Last year, I lived five months in Jaipur which was wonderful. I saw the Taj back in 1997 during a ten day visit...but I need to go again.
