St. Albans

Although I'm staying in Harpenden, my first post will be of a neighboring city!

Had some free time today and ran (or took the train, rather) to St. Albans. Apparently, what makes a city a city is that it has a cathedral! It's not related to the population. Thus, Harpenden: no cathedral; not a city. St. Albans? Cathedral. City!

I love these "interrupted" photos sometimes!

Modern street, but you can imagine some of these buildings looking just like this in the days before cars...

Neat church, although NOT the cathedral mentioned above...

...and of course, a pasty (PAST-ee) for lunch!
