Tughluqabad

Today we went to the awesome Tughlaqabad Fort. It's REALLY cool! It's a HUGE fort! This was built at the begining of the Tughlaq dynasty in 1321... so it's really old :) It was abandoned in 1327!! Can you imagine doing all that work and then abandoning it just a few years later?! In the pic below is a pic of our awesome tour guides :) Connor and Clayton have started up their business (HUT - High Urban Trekkers) - so if anyone is interested for a tour - I highly recommend it!
The kids in the pic below followed us around for most of it :)
The pic below made me think of Indiana Jones :) This was in the Mausoleum of Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq.... I know, long name :) haha!
Here's a pic of Adam, Aashini & me inside the walls of the fort...
They're doing a lot of repairs on the fort right now. I thought the lady below was cute and had a great smile :)
My parents had a lot of fun too :) They had fun playing with the kids too.
It's so fun that there are so many cool things to see in our city! Let's see what tomorrow holds!!

What fun! That one pic is totally Indiana Jones... did you make sure you measured the stick right before finding the spot where you needed to dig?..haha!
We've got some fun stuff around our city too... I wish Isaac would come out so we could show him!
