    Must admit, I’m a sucker for old churches.

    EDIT: oops, that’s not very old! The originals got bombed by the Germans …

  2. Tyrell says:

    I always have wondered why they did not restore that cathedral.
    Is there some source where we can get progress reports on Notre Dame?
    Largest Gothic cathedral? Right in New York City.

    Vacation? Work related? Enjoy.

  4. @gVOR08: I am here on business (we were looking into some partnership opportunities with the University of Coventry–the cathedral is basically on their campus).

    @Tyrell: As it was told to me, they left it as a symbol of the horrors of war and they dedicated it to the process of reconciliation.

  5. @Franklin: This photo is the remnant of what was bombed–notice the lack of a roof.
