Sagrada Familia


You know how they say if you've seen one church you've seen them all?

Bullhockey.

It was strange and wonderful and massive and quite unlike anything I've ever experienced. (At the same time, it was exactly what I'd envisioned.)

That is incredible. I love the 2nd and 4th pic. I am amazed at the architecture, and the human effort that went into this building. Truly remarkable.

Oh, and I'm glad you got sleep! Those 12 hours sure do help, don't the?

It always struck me as if it was melting, at least from the outside view. Or like one of those beach sand drip drip sandcastles. http://www.wickedsatisfying.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/dripcastle.jpg

Clearly, I chose the right profession by not becoming an architect. Yes, I just compared an amazing architectural achievement to a drip drip sandcastle.

Shameful.

And I'm still jealous. Have fun!!

It's hard NOT to feel spiritual in a place like that. It was striking. The scale is so much more overwhelming in person.

That is exactly what my sister-in-law and her boyfriend, who've been living/teaching in Spain for the past year and a half, said about that church. Stunning!
