Fearless femme in church tower
Murcia, Murcia, Murcia. I asked: what are palm trees good for? Answer: they don't need water, and give shadow. (I also plan to use parts of it as long plates, but more about that later.)
A friend is visiting. He is a terrific photographer.
We went to see the cathedral tower together.
To access the clock room, my favourite kind of key is needed.
The mechanical clockwork is not in use, however:
it is all electronic.
But some secrets are analogue. I can of course not tell you what it is about. Ok, a clue: whispers.
There are several terraces.
The two tower like buildings belong to a sausage company, I believe. Therefore: sausage towers.
But it is possible to get even higher,
to the bells.
They did indeed ring while we were there, but only to mark 12:45 o'clock.
And friend and I got an idea: going to the mountain with the Christ on top - visible from the opposite of here - tomorrow.
