Cathedral in Argentina
May 19, 2014
Thanks to everyone for your comments on my "R" shot yesterday. Boy, we sure had some GREAT shots of shapes that look like R's. Good job SmugMuggers! And there were some other photos that were outstanding too!
This is another re-worked photo from our trip to Argentina. We were fortunate to get to see a lot of the country. When we arrived in Buenos Aires we stayed there a day, then drove from there to Cordoba, which is about 435 miles. Unfortunately for us, they had had record levels of rain and there was a LOT of flooding. Many of the roads we would normally have taken were washed out, so we had to detour. We stayed near Cordoba for 4 days, then drove to Corrientes, Argentina which was 563 miles. We were in Corrientes for 3 days, then flew back to Buenos Aires. We only had about 1/2 day in Buenos Aires on the return, so we hired a driver to take us around the city as best he could in the 4 hours we had to spare.
Anyway, this lovely cathedral was somewhere along the drive from Cordoba to Corrientes. I wish I cold recall what town it was in, but I don't. We stopped here for a break to stretch our legs and walk around the lovely park that was just across the street from the cathedral. I particularly liked the blue and white tiles on the dome.
"I went and looked at one of these great cathedrals one day, and I was blown away by it. From there I became interested in how cathedrals were built, and from there I became interested in the society that built the medieval cathedral. It occurred to me at some point that the story of the building of a cathedral could be a great popular novel." ~ Ken Follett
If you've never read the "Pillars of Earth" by Ken Follett and the building of a Gothic cathedral, I highly recommend it.
As mentioned yesterday, I'm headed for a week's work in Birmingham, AL. Bill's been in California since Thursday and comes home today. If we're lucky, we'll see each other in the airport. I get home next Friday (5/23). We'll have the weekend together, then he leaves for Ohio on Monday (5/26) and will be gone for 7 days.
Have a magnificent Monday my friends!
