I have been home from Europe for a month, about the same amount of time I was gone for. My days have been long, lazy summer days not particularly full of anything too urgent at the moment, but I am just now getting around to sharing more photos here. Next up, La Sagrada Familia, on our last day in Barcelona.
If any line was worth waiting in on this trip, it was this one. As I stepped inside, I literally gasped as I took in one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever been inside of. I don't know how long Maria and I sat in the chairs near the back of the cluster near the alter, across the aisle from each other, but gazing up at the beam of light shining through the roof is one of the most memorable moments for me from our whole trip. Jackhammers from the continued construction of the church's exterior competed with the organ music being played inside, but it made for a perfectly imperfect combination of peace and progress.
