As I mentioned on Monday, after our full two days in Rajasthan, we went on a pilgrimage to see the Taj Mahal. It was quite the trek — a full 5 hour drive from Rajasthan, and then 4 hours back to Delhi, but when in Rome…. How could we not see the Taj Mahal? Although it was an incredibly long day (on no sleep as the wedding was the night before), it was pure magic.
It was quite the racket to even get IN to the Taj Mahal. First of all, we had to be dropped off by our car 2 kilometers away and walk to the gates. We had not eaten a thing that day (we left before breakfast and street food was not happening for us), so the walk felt like miles and miles……but once we got through the ticket purchasing, the security, and all the lines, we saw this. MAGIC.
Am I still on a France kick after the marathon? Guilty!
If you have a staycation or at-home date night planned with your Josie Guy this weekend, I highly suggest ‘Rust and Bone‘, a great French movie I just watched. Released almost a year ago, this French film beautifully captures love, struggle, beauty, strength and heart. Watch it TONIGHT! It is not to miss.
Rust and Bone.
Unbelievably passionate, strong, and touching.
The film is directed by Jacques Audiard, starring Marion Cotillard (babe to the max) and Mattias Schoeaerts (hot damn). The story is about an unemployed single father who falls in love with a killer whale trainer. The film received rave reviews. Both Cotillard, known for her fashion (always chic) and her Oscar nomination for ‘La Vie est Rose,’ and Schoeaerts are incredible.
Marion Cotillard. Super model.
TEARS! This scene makes you cry like no other.
Matthias Schoenaerts, the new Belgian Brad Pitt, gives a breakthrough performance in this film. The New York Times T Magazine calls Schoenaerts the new American sensation.
