Chapter eight : A new weekend has come

After two weeks of hard work in ludhiana, finally our second weekend arrived ,and the destination was Agra! And this time I had two great travel partners, from the bella Italia, Alessandra and from the exotic Brazil, Bernardo! We were very happy to begin our next wild adventure in the middle of our beloved India! So we went to the trail station for our departure at 4:30pm
The station looked very quiet and we were very happy to be there on time and relaxed.
We placed together and we were making jokes and talking about cultural facts of the places that we will visit.
The train received us with a warm! And more food and more food! (I will return to Mexico very rounded)
After 4 hours of laughs and little times of sleep we finally arrived to New Delhi, at 10pm and the city was still alive and full of noise of course, so we decided to take a little walk around the corner
After a short walk and fresh air, we went to sleep!, in the morning we went for some quick breakfast! And it was really nice one, the morning was fresh and pointing to be a great day!
In the road we stopped for food at some restaurant in the middle of nowhere,miaterious like in a horror movie,(the shining) hahahaha!! But against our toughts the food was veeeery good, specially the noodles and my favorite ones( the butter naan) 
And outside of the restaurant we saw some lucky charms for protection and good luck used in business places and also to carry with you in your car or motorcycle, they looked kinda different  but was interesting know other traditions
The charms for the safety..
And for the good luck..
And after some hours (approximately 7) we arrived to our first attraction! Fathepuhr Sikri!

All the view inside was incredible and very interesting, also the solitude and magnificence of the place, only with the simple fact to be there relax you and makes you feel in another time and identified with the place.
The color and the detailed construction was just incredible and worth of fairytales.
We walked over the place and we took so many good pictures!
Built during the second half of the 16th century by the Emperor Akbar, Fatehpur Sikri (the City of Victory) was the capital of the Mughal Empire for only some 10 years. The complex of monuments and temples, all in a uniform architectural style, includes one of the largest mosques in India, the Jama Masjid.
The place also was full of graveyards of warriors who defended the city in ancient time!
The place was stunning! And full of brilliant colors as well...
Then we went inside of the white temple and we offered flowers and made a wish in the door
The architecture and the design details as well were impressive!
We had so much fun there!
So after a time we decided to spend the night in Agra, but that's other history.. Keep going in the next blog :)!!
