We arrived in York earlier today and are staying at the Sycamore Guest House.
We're sitting in York Minster getting ready to hear an evensong. This church is enormous and pretty.
York is hot and busy. But cool.
We ate lunch at Café Concerto. I got a potato, zucchini, and parmesan frittata, and she got a mozzarella and veggie baguette with tomato soup. YUMMERS.
To get to town from our B&B, we walked through the prettiest little park with a museum and some abbey ruins.
I finished Under the Banner of Heaven on the train here and felt utterly disgusted by the whole situation. I can't think about it anymore right now, though, because evensong is about the begin!
Showered at last! The Syracuse Guest House has a gracious owner and a sink in the room and it's just lovely. It's away from the hubbub of central York, so that's nice. We are so tired!
We went to an Italian restaurant for dinner, and she had a chicken caesar salad and I had a chicken pizza with roasted red peppers and onions and garlic. We each had a Moretti and it was all very nice except for our waitress who looked like she had crawled out of the sewer.
We're headed to London tomorrow around lunchtime. And I'm just too tired to write anything else, I think!
About this time in ...
