York Minster Cathedral York Minster Cathedral is a very old, very impressive building in the city of York. March 10, 2000

York Minster: 

York Minster The vaulting in York Minster makes a person feel rather insignificant—and it does make us want to raise our eyes to the heavens. March 10, 2000

Eiffel Tower: 

Eiffel Tower The Eiffel Tower is definitely one of those things that looks a lot bigger in person than it does in a picture. March 11, 2000

Arc de Triomphe: 

Arc de Triomphe The Arc de Triomphe stands out even on a foggy day in Paris. On a sunny day, I’ll bet it’s magnificent. March 11, 2000

Arc de Triomphe: 

Arc de Triomphe To understand the size of this structure, all you have to do is look along the top of it and see all those teeny, tiny people standing up there. March 11, 2000

Champs Elysees Mary, Nancy, Roberta, and Akiko are looking down the Champs Elysees—no, not at a good-looking Frenchman, but at one of the tiniest cars we’ve ever seen. March 11, 2000

Canterbury Cathedral: 

Canterbury Cathedral Out behind the Cathedral. March 12, 2000

Canterbury Cathedral: 

Canterbury Cathedral The pulpit in the cathedral is VERY ornate. Obviously any preacher here is going to feel rather important—or very insignificant. March 12, 2000

Canterbury Cathedral: 

Canterbury Cathedral This is another cathedral with an impressive ceiling. Wouldn’t you hate to have been the person who had to work up there when it was being built? March 12, 2000

Canterbury Cathedral:

Canterbury Cathedral: 

Canterbury Cathedral Another exterior view of the skyline of the cathedral. March 12, 2000

Canterbury:

And then it was time to head for home—March 13, 2000:
