There to meet us were our friends Heike and Martin who we met in Panama and spent time with in Peru. We were made very welcome for our 3 day stay and we packed a lot of sightseeing, talking and drinking into our 3 days! Lincoln is a beautiful city well known for its 12th century Cathedral and Castle and Roman walls. It also has an original Magna Carta on display. Quite interesting to us was that in the Lincoln "Museum of Life" there was a feature on human rights. There was a panel on Australia's bad record in regards to the Tampa crisis and refugees in general! We also visited nearby Bevoir castle where the family still live in gracious style but open up their house and gardens for the tourists on Sundays. Next it is on to Ireland.
