Today we visited Chester.  We had a few travel difficulties in getting to Chester, but it was well worth the trip.  My experience this year with this small town was much better.  Last year, it rained and was incredibly windy.  This year, however, the weather was beautiful.  We were able to have a quick lunch in the Cathedral where the monks would have eaten during the days of the monetary.   We were able to enter the cathedral for free due to it being Sunday.  Unfortunately, that also meant the audio guides were also not available for use. We wandered around the cathedral and around 3pm the choir gathered for practice.  It was wonderful to be able to hear such an amazing choir in a place with such beauty.  I feel especially at home in cathedrals.  I am not religious, but, being in a space in which people have come to make peace in for centuries, along with the vastness of space, and the comforting familiarity of the motifs makes me feel at peace.
