Notes: I was inspired to post this card today because the pit stop for last night's leg of The Amazing Race ended in the Moonlit Garden in Agra, India.  That garden is directly across the Yamuna River from the Taj Mahal, shown here.  The Taj Mahal, regarded as the 'Monument of Love', was built between 1632 and 1653 by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.  It is made of white marble inlaid with semi-precious stones.  UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1983, and in 2007, it was declared one of the New7Wonders of the World.

FYI, I am not going to regularly post two cards on weekends anymore.  Why?  Because I'm running out of cards to post!!
