Ancient Sites Of India
As you walk through the plains, you are walking through a civilization that was once Harappa. In Harappa they domesticate animals just like sheep, goat, and cattle. Now in days, they are located in Pakistan. What was interesting was that they had large walls, that surrounded the city. They are called citadel, it means a core fortified area. Grains were used and stored in a granary. Other than Harappa, there is another ancient site. Mohenjo Daro modern houses were flat roofs and was made out of mud bricks. Just like Harappa they had walls, but surrounded each neighborhood. Under the streets waste water flowed to the drains. The residents would built large granaries to store food.
Now that we have talk about ancient civilization, now its time to talk about India today. Today in India they have problem of over populations. Also that in the past India only 4 out of 10 kids got to go to primary school! Now in India 8 out of 10 kids get to go to primary school. Sadly the river has gotten more waste than ever and is very not good to drink water from it. Today in India has gotten over one billion, they have grew more than eighteen million! Some people estimate that by 2050, that India will number some 1.5 billion. Another is that India will surpassed the population of China, which is the biggest population of the whole wide world!

Don't forget to retrieve your 500mL bottle of water and shoe covers [is included in the Taj ticket price].

Sometimes you think a taxi cab will come in five minutes, but you find yourself waiting an half of an hour. That means getting around can get be longer than expected. Also don't buy things that are to good to be true because they might be scams. Be prepared for lots of noise because it might be loud as an earthquake. Might hear the engine roaring and lots of people talking. At least you get a little privacy.
