  1. Oh wow! This is a magnificent old structure! I could spend a week just investigating all its nooks and crannies! The beautiful paintings alone would take days! Love all the stone. The facade looks strong enough to face a Florida hurricane!

    Hope you are already experiencing the very best of weekends!!!


  2. da fachada o que chama atenção mesmo é a janela redonda… mas por dentro muito show.

    Post legal para o findi da Páscoa!

    Merci pour le partage, les amis. Et merci pour le plaisir de vos visites et de vos petits mots sympas.
    Et désolée d'avoir un peu tardé à vous rendre visite. Le temps ne cesse de fuir et moi de courir après!

    No Krokos in that pond by the bench. Or I should say I didn't see any.

    Re the bloodmobile: Yes, you can get credit for so many pints of blood with a blood bank. Which is a good thing for if you need surgery, there will be no problem getting whatever blood you might need.
