Today I will submerge myself in nostalgia. As we are confined to our house in the UK, observing the universal lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This seems to be the only way Margaret and I will be able to travel for a very long time to come.

I thought I would revisit our trip to India today and I chose this photograph of the red fort in Agra.

We visited this amazing tourist attraction during our trip. I remember a sad story about the Shah Jahan who built the astonishing Taj Mahal a pure work of art, his tomb in remembrance of his lover.  Apparently his son took over his rule and he was consigned to a comfortable room in the Red Fort. The story goes that he would lie in his bed overlooking the Taj Mahal and remember his deceased love.

Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal took approximately 20 years and approximately 20,000 workers to complete. There were about 1000 Elephants used to transport the materials needed for construction.
