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.
