After the museum we wandered around the downtown area for a while and then since the boys could not make a decision about where to eat we went back to their house and made sandwiches and sat around for literally several hours. When it finally started getting dark we decided it was time to do something else, so we decided on York.
The old castle walls still surround the down town area which is full of all these cute little shops and restaurants.
We walked to the York Abbey. Chris was trying to argue that it was more impressive than Notre Dame. No way! Beautiful but can't beat Notre Dame.
This is the crew that went to York. Chris, Rob ("Hot Rob" as dubbed by two friends in SD), Lauren, Ross and me. They all go to Leeds University. The Young Single Adult scene is really different here. It is not unusual for people to drive 3 or 4 hours to a YSA dance in one night, so the whole country is close friend. Kind of fun.
Here we are in front of the abbey.
While we were walking around the abbey this group of about 150 people spontaneously came out of a side street following this man, so we thought we would find out what was going on and meshed in with the group. Turned out to be one of the famous Ghost Hunt walks of York. This guy was a fantastic story teller and took us to a bunch of the haunted parts of the city and told us the ghost stories. It was so amazing, I will definitly have to come back to York.
