Mike and I visited Durham in late August. We went on a business trip, but decided to do some sightseeing on the way back. We had limited knowledge about the city. Mike told me it has a cathedral and an old university. Did I like it? I fell in love with it!
It is a medieval city, full of gargoyles. I love them! I have even travelled to Northern France to see them on their churches and cathedrals. They take me to an another world.
After seeing the city centre, we went to see the cathedral. We come from Canterbury famous for the cathedral. Did we get disappointed? No! On the contrary. I was blown away!
We have climbed the tallest tower. The staircase is old narrow stone spiral staircase. It has 325 steps. But what a view!
I am not scared of height, yet I felt queasy when I looked down.
|Death seemed so close when I looked down from the top of the tower.|
