Chini Tomb in Agra, India

After an early morning at the Taj Mahal we negotiated for a tuk-tuk (as we called the three-wheeled vehicles) to take us around to a few other sites in Agra.

The 300R price we were to pay was arranged with Abbib but he only took us only a short distance and then switched off with another driver who was introduced as Kalu.Our auto rickshaw driver in Agra, IndiaDespite the horrendous traffic we only had to small accidents on the way to Chini Tomb; once we clipped another tuk-tuk and then there was another tuk-tuk that we ran into.
