I have been in Durham for around a week now and it has certainly been an experience!
I have tried English food, Yorkshire pudding, meat pie and a lot more – Love it!
Further, I have met the mayor of Durham, visited Durham Cathedral and Durham castle.
Durham Cathedral is actually highly interesting. The length of the beautiful cathedral is 143 meters and 22 meters high, so as you can imagine, it is huge. The building of the cathedral started in 1093, and it finished 1133. The cathedral has 3 towers; 2 central towers and 1 western.
The cathedral is marvelous and it is being visited by around 600,000 people yearly.
It has therefore been a highly interesting first week.
