Peeved Tourists

Peevish Tourists
I can't believe how pissed-off we look. It's a four-hour drive from Delhi to Agra, where the Taj Mahal is, so it's not as if we were all fresh and dewy at this point. We hired a car and driver, and a guide got thrown in also. His pushy manner had started to wear on us by now. He seemed to get antsy whenever we started to get interested in something. It was right about when he took this picture that he started yelling at some Japanese or Japanese-American tourists who were videotaping the Taj. Our butinski guide claimed it was against the rules. I never got to the bottom of whether or not videotaping the Taj is an offense, but I wish that he'd let it slide.

Seriously, though, we did have a really great time. So good a time that I'm going to wipe from my memory the large sums we gave to look like dorks in the tonga. You'd think we were headed to our own public execution judging by that expression I have (on the left).
