I’ve been a little under the weather lately so Spencer and I have spent most of our spare time (When Spencer's not studying for the LSAT) just lounging around and taking it easy. We decided to start on a random 1000 piece puzzle which we found in his parents basement. The 1000 piece puzzle turned into a rather frustrating 992 piece puzzle when we realized we were 8 pieces short. It's surprisingly more difficult to do a 992 piece puzzle than a 1000 piece puzzle because you spend all your time looking for pieces that don't actually exist.
Here are some random facts about the Taj Mahal that Spencer repeatedly informed me about while working on the puzzle.
- The Taj Mahal was built by the Emperor Shah Jahan of the Mughal empire for his (favorite) wife.
- It was reported that he wanted to build a black one for himself directly infront, but perhaps ran out of funding.
- It took over 20 years to build it.
