A Week in England With My Daughter

I spent the first week of May visiting my daughter Marta, who´s spending a semester abroad at the University of Sussex. We spent most of the weekend traveling around the southern part of England.
This is Westminster Abbey, probably the most beautiful building I've seen in all of my travels.

This is the changing of guard at Buckingham Palace.
This is a building in Brighton built by one of the kings.





For me the highlight of the trip was a visit to the Eden Project, the largest plant conservatory in the world.






We also walked around the moors one day and visited a fourteenth century church that we found on top of a hill.




This is my daughter. She´s completely mastered dressing like a Brit, but still has some work to do on the accent.

I especially like the old church on the hill. It's a marvellous thing to imagine that families have gathered in that place to worship since before Columbus sailed across the Atlantic. Great photos. And oh yes, pass along to your daughter that she has wonderful warm eyes.
