... we came to our hotel & after checking in we went for lunch at the very Spanish time of 3.30. We then walked around to look at the cathedral as you do in each town you go to.

We of course went the long way around the cathedral & I noticed vaguely a young woman reading a map looking for the entrance too. We walked around the side of the cathedral ...

Its just so hard to get up and get out when I know its sweltering hot and the sun is beating down. I will do it ...
... I will be taking one of my exams for my classes in America early. Of course that means that tonight I will be studying for several hours before collapsing on my bed, only to wake up and head to classes.
