The weather is nice today!! I know I seem to be over-hyped about this whole weather thing sometimes, but seeing blue sky in Glasgow is a big deal! The two streaks of clouds I saw today seemed to have given this cathedral a set of wings 🙂

It’s better to light a candle than to curse the dark, but often it’s easier to curse the dark and harder to light the candle instead, no?

I always felt that the figures of the saints sculpted on the entrance of Saint-André are quite exquisite and a splendid work of art. There are way too many to count…

The late afternoon sun hides behind Saint-André, retreating with it the 37 degrees Celsius heat that struck us today. As a result, Saint-André almost looked just like a silhouette.

Arrival in Strasbourg today was welcomed by rain…lots of rain. Thankfully my hotel is right in the city centre, giving me quick access to all the points of interest. Conference starts tomorrow, and due to the rain, I only walked around very briefly while searching for food. Already, Strasbourg’s cathedral impressed me upon first look. It could almost go head to head against the Dom in Cologne, which makes our Saint-André in Bordeaux look very puny in comparison 😛
