July 6, 2012.
still a little jet lagged. Friday we headed to Durham to see the cathedral and castle there. such a quaint little place. like most places I've visited in Europe. cobblestone streets, ancient stone buildings, and oh! the american "embassy," Starbucks.
we walked along the river and up to the cathedral. a very impressively built structure. we then went and had fish and chips and pots of tea. my mouth still waters to think of those amazing bites of crispy cod and soft chips with vinegar and lemon.
after, we headed to the Durham castle, but, alas! it was closed for a wedding. disappointing. i know.
