Another very busy day but great experience. We were exhausted but still found the energy for an hour or so of Quiddler before calling it a day.
... the city acknowledging the holiday, it was clear that the more religious Easter has not taken off here, in the same way Christmas has, so I really enjoyed still being able to celebrate it at Church.
