Report by Max Poscente (17): One day before our expedition group convenes in New Delhi, my dad and I have taken a day trip to visit one of the seven man-made wonders of the world. The Taj Mahal. Close your eyes as you run your hand over the ornate walls and you feel only cold, smooth marble. Open your eyes and an explosion of color from semi-precious, inlayed stone reveal a tapestry of flowered designs. It is amazing and motivational to see the artistry.
