      There’s a funny story about that outfit. At last year’s apartment, there was a used clothing store below us. I would often check to see what they had because it changed constantly. I bought the pants and shirt for 15 euros!

    I was waiting to see if you shared that I was fascinated about the drains in the church. There were multiple man-hole like sewer drains running right down the main aisle of the church -all the way up to the altar (zoom in on the line of mosaic tiles). I wanted to know what was down there – so, with no one else but us around, I looked! (One looked like a huge snake or lizard monster but I settled that it had to be a pipe of some sort; the second I swear had a small duffle bag! The last one I checked was “all clear.” I concluded they couldn’t be for ventilation but rather simply drains for being able to mop the mosaic tiles which were literally squeaky clean. Who knows?! Mom said possibly something about letting spirits travel (mom, edit this to what you said if that’s not correct)

    Thanks Linda. Hope you all have a meaningful Memorial Day.
    My visits to the cemeteries in Normandy were extremely sobering and thought provoking.

    Isn’t it fun to experience how each of us are drawn to things like the drains in the church, then guessing their purpose. I like this story! Looking forward to pictures and experiences from the Normandy trip.

    The church was immaculate. How very lovely. Wish I could add something about the drains but I am clueless.
