I have a treat for you today. We’ll get to it;) Today was a roll down the road day, I am putting on the kilometers as I am working my way towards Morocco.

Shot from my dorm window funky hostel in Evora. This place was old and in original condition. The stairs were stone, steep, and wide enough for only one person. You had to duck to go through the doors and there were no windows, just wooden shutters.

The cathedral’s pipe organ in Evora. The sun was shining through the stained glass windows.

Ok, here it is. This “bone cathedral” was an annex to the convent in Evora and was built in the first half of the 17th century. They used folks from the town cemetery. The inscription above the door reads “We bones here for yours await.”

The place was intense and sobering. It was good to step outdoors afterwards into the sunshine and bird song.

Ok, so who gives you stuff you’ve never seen before?

  1. “We need a few more bones over there Joe” Ha ha ha! That really got me laughing.

    Any new wisdom? Nope, just old wisdom, like, it’s better to be alive than dead!

    And with a pedal pedal pedal,

    I’m on my way!
