I'm an aspiring archaeologist, although my ambition greatly exceeds my talent. My passion is early Israelite archaeology, as well as the rise of the three Abrahamic traditions. Specifically, my interests surround religion, power dynamics, and human rights. My uninteresting personal life ideally involves folk music, instant coffee, and late-night conversations.
I'm studying anthropology and religion at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
View of the Taj Mahal from the top of the nature trail on the East side.
We were on the gazebo at the far end of a nature trail that surrounds Taj Mahal next to its East side entrance. It was a perfect setting, with the Taj Mahal in front, visible through a dense forest cover.
The sun however, was playing hide-and-seek with the clouds and we were trying to get that perfect time when the clouds would move revealing a golden light.
When suddenly, the light drizzle turned into a heavy lashing. Stranded inside the gazebo (which thankfully also protected the camera), we none-the-less took some rain soaked shots.
And in turn had our best Taj Mahal experience. You really never know what awaits you when.
