We took a small tour of the countryside on Saturday. Sadly it is very similar to Kansas (but much greener) so it wasn't as interesting as I had hoped. We did see Koi's jobsite from a distance--its in a "dodgey" area--glad we're not living in Immingham! We will have to venture farther away to see better landscaping. However, it was very exciting to see all the different architecture and old buildings. We visited our first Cathedral. It is in the city of Lincoln, about 30 minutes from where we are staying. The cathedral is appropriately named, Lincoln Cathedral. You never really realize how old, old is, until you see it. It was an amazing site. So beautiful and so huge! It is tucked away in the centre of Lincoln. There are little streets that twist around the area--neat shops and pubs. The cathedral has been through a few changes, due to fires and additions, since its creation in 1072. However, it has stayed relatively the same for the last 200 years. It is the third largest in Britain. We had been driving most of the day already so we did not take the tour. We are very
excited to go back and see the rest of the Cathedral. Did I mention this is the Cathedral used in the movie The DaVinci Code. There was an orchestra and choir playing when we arrived. It made the atmosphere even more enjoyable. I have to learn how to use my camera better indoors. So when we return hopefully I can take some better pictures. Outside of the Cathedral is a castle. The weather wasn't cooperating so we didn't tour it either. So much to see and it's so close!
Koi starts work Monday so the siteseeing will be saved for the weekends. Construction starts April 1st so right now they are going through all their safety meetings. Exciting! There is already a power plant constructed (thats part of what you see in the pic) so they are adding on to it. Can't wait to show you all more. Until then. . .
BTW, I tried driving a little more. Not as scary as I thought, but deffinately different!
