The cathedral picture is not mine but I love it. That is my hand though.

Turns out it's the first Sunday of Lent and all the churches were full, the organs playing, the singers singing, but best of all was the Cathedral where I happened to arrive just in time for the end of the service.

It was packed in there and the music was splendid. At the end the head priest, dressed in extravagant purple raiment and headdress, was walking through the crowds shaking water on heads or hands. I held out my hands and bam, holy water and a sweet smile.

I behaved myself and didn't take pictures inside as requested, but I'll go back when there isn't a service.
