I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Trip to India & Nepal - Agra Part 1

After the usual hassles with tuk tuks and taxis we arrived at our hotel and dropped off our bags. It was a budget affair (Tourist Rest Home) where I have stayed before and had a beautiful courtyard/restaurant. One of its attractions as the rooms are ok but not special. The owner is also very good about organizing honest tuk tuk drivers for you and is very helpful.

A goat by a shop in an alley near the entrance to the Taj. To cut down pollution cars now have to park quite a ways from the entrance.

You are now also searched in a similar fashion to boarding an aircraft.
You are not allowed to enter with food or beverage and they give you a bottle of water.

No photo ever does it justice. The building just glows.

The mosque.
