About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 27,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 32 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 50 posts. There were 130 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 32mb. That’s about 3 pictures per week.
