Hey, I'm Sydney. I'm a 22 year old art director hailing from Birmingham, Alabama with a weird knack for cheap flights. I'm on a mission to travel deeper not wider. Join me on my adventures!

this post is going to be very short, as I have a lot of other writing to do.  

We went to four places. First was India Gate. It was magical. There isn't much shade here, and it can be done in 10 minutes.

The second place we visited was Ghandi's burial place. The experience was incredible... Like, I literally stood next to where Ghandi was buried... Wow. you have to take off your shoes whenever you go to holy sites, so we were literally all scurrying across the stone floor, our feet baking in the heat.

From Ghandi's Burial place, we took our taxi to Lahore Gate (the red gate). The outside was enormous. I couldn't even see the full expanse of the gate. The inside was filled with little markets and more historical sights. I got so wrapped up in shopping that I missed most of the historical attractions. It reminded me a bit of Chinatown, how the vendors would open doors to show you more goods.

From the red gate, we walked through the bustling streets to get to the mosque. Jami Masjid was the most breathtaking place I've been to date. The mosque was so intricate and the beauty of the architecture was stunning.  me and three friends sat down to take a picture, and my friend got recordings of the locals throwing their kids on us and taking pictures of us. We had to wear "robes" to enter the mosque. 

Because I loved the mosque so much, I took tons of pictures. Below is a collection of them.
