What the?

... By now Iīm used to the day starting glooming, then full on sunshine and finishing with a complete down pour of cats and dogs and being completely drenched.

Yes it was a neat church ruin to see, but we didn't even get to go into the museum. A church is only so interesting when it doesn't have a roof, or anything inside for that matter.
