Easter

Hello Reader,

It’s been a while since Easter, but between then and now, I’ve have papers and exams and have not found time to tend to the blog.  But I’m back now.

I arrived in Glasgow on Tuesday morning and took the train to Edinburgh.  Once there, I checked into a hostel, then went to the zoo.  Sadly, my camera ran out of battery-power at the zoo, so I did not succeed in taking any pictures, but you’ll be glad to know that they have a new pair of pandas, making them the only zoo in the UK so fortunate.

The next day I went to St. Andrews.  It was really nice to be back.  I’ve missed it a lot.  There’s an old tower that was once part of the now ruined cathedral that I never took the time to climb back when I was a student.  I fixed that on this trip.

After this, I went down to Durham for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  Since Durham Cathedral is, in my opinion, the most magnificent cathedral in Britain, I can’t think of a nicer looking place to have spent Easter this year.

Durham is a wonderful place for walking around, too.  It was nice to be back.

I’ll type up another update soon.  I just got back from another class field-trip and am looking forward to showing you the pictures from it.   I hope all is well, and thanks for reading.

B.
