Agra


I spent my last weekend in India visiting Agra with Liza and Gareth. My plan was to ease the transition between Hajipur and the USA by a luxury weekend in Agra. We visited the Taj Mahal, of course, as well as Fatehpur Sikri, capital of Akbar's Mughal empire in the 16th century. The luxury weekend was great, but I am not sure it helped make my transition back to the USA any less difficult.

Here are a few pics from the Agra weekend. At left, Liza in front of the Taj Mahal. Below, MSF-Spain Coordination Dream Team outside Amarvillas hotel, Agra, and several pictures of Fatehpur Sikri. I recommend William Dalrymple's City of Djinns for a brief history of the Mughal empire and Akbar's reign. The book actually chronicle's the history of Delhi; there is a chapter devoted to Akbar.

Dear Nomad,

I have been following your blog since I also work on VL in Bihar. I am going to Bihar for a month in July and was disappointed to see you were leaving. I was hoping to connect with MSF's work and see how/if we could partner. Is there someone else there I could contact while I am in Patna? If so please email me at swelty15@hotmail.com.

Thanks for sharing your experiences!

[b]В школе на уроке мира перед детьми выступает Сталин. Видя, что от его
речи школьники начинают клевать носом, он решил сменить монолог на
диалог:
- У кого-нибудь из вас есть ко мне вопросы?
Тут встает Петя Иванов и говорит:
- У меня к вам три вопроса:
1) кто убил товарища Кирова?
2) почему люди в стране такие нищие?
3) почему в стране постоянно нарушаются права человека?
Сталин чувствует, что его прошибает холодный пот, но тут звенит звонок и
дети стремглав выбегают из класса. В начале следующего урока Сталин
опять спрашивает:
- У кого-нибудь еще есть ко мне вопросы?
Вовочка:
- У меня к вам пять вопросов:
1) кто убил товарища Кирова?
2) почему люди в стране такие нищие?
3) почему в стране постоянно нарушаются права человека?
4) почему звонок прозвенел на 20 минут раньше?
5) где Петя Иванов? [/b]
