Having parked the car, my hosts and I took a camel ride from the parking lot to the entrance of the Taj Mahal. The camel driver charged us a total of 50 rupees ($1) to drive us about 850 meters. I have to say that I felt very bad for the camel. When the driver launched himself into his seat, I noticed that his shirt read, “I’m surrounded by idiots.” I burst out laughing. I regret that I didn’t have the courage to ask for a photo, but I wonder if he knew what his shirt said or if like many Americans with Chinese calligraphy on their clothing, he was entirely oblivious.
