Train from Delhi to Agra

We arranged for a driver to the train station through the hotel. The train station was pretty crowded. It was also the only spot that I wished I brought my backpack instead of a suitcase with wheels. We had to go up and down stairs over the tracks and there were no ramps. The train was really nice and they served a big breakfast. I think a lot of tourists take the train since the Taj Mahal is in Agra. We got to Agra and checked into our hotel. It had a view of the Taj from the rooftop. It was still so hot and dry there, though. We went to a local market and tried to find some henna shops. We found a small local henna shop.

The henna there is put into small tubes, like cake frosting tubes. The locals painted the henna on. It was a paste that you rub off once it dries. It stains your skin and can last for two weeks. I had my feet done and my classmates had their hands and forearms done.
