Some bright houses on the way
The museum is in the house of a man who is a very eccentric aristocrat. We didn't realize it at first, but he was the one doing our tour! It was quite an experience! He has his collection set up so that most of the pieces are incorporated into his decor.
He pointed our EVERY single detail, haha! And we could barely understand his accent, but became used to it after a while.
He had a beautiful old piano that he insisted we should hear -- so Lucinda fortunately obliged and played a lovely piece by Rocherolle
Archie's feelings about most of it
But I think the olders enjoyed it!
"Just touch it. Touch it!!!" That is how he was most of the tour. Along with assertions that he just "had to have" such and such and that he did it for us! So he could share it with us!
A little video so that you can truly experience his individuality
Phin trying to make it more fun
Whew! The boys were free at last!!! We grabbed some delicious kebabs and then headed over to the Castle!
There is always cool street art to be found
There is the castle! Let's go there!
Oops! We walked past the entrance and thinking it was just around the corner, went for an hour long hike up a very very steep hill! It was hot! But the view was nice
Lots of breaks
Okay, back on track! It was fine that we went for an unexpected hike, but we just get a little bit stressed because all of the attractions close early during the Winter and we didn't want to miss the main event.
More Moorish architecture -- lovely arches, beautiful gardens and fountains.
After we left the castle, Matthew took Charles, Lucinda, Ibby, and Phin on a Segway tour of the city. I don't have pics of that -- my phone must've died or something... Ella, Archie, and I went and found a little playground and had a bit of gelado while we waited. It was a wonderful day!
