Lourdes

Sunday 19. september me and Marta went to Lourdes. It's a small town not to far from Pau, about 15 minuts by train. The Pope visited Lourdes last summer. It's a holy town where a lot of pilgrims go every year. It's a saying that the Holy Mary showed her self there around year 1800 (I think!). There she washed her self in the water, and now people(catholics) from all over the world comes there to drink the water, to bath in the water and to bring the water to their friends and families and I don't know what. I drank and bathed in the water, but I don't feel any difference. For me that whole thing is very wierd.

We spent a nice day in Lourdes. After visiting the church and the holy water and some other wierd stuff, we went to the castle of Lourdes. It was more like a museum, but interesting.


This is me in front of the church.


This is Lourdes from the top of the castle. You can see the church by the forest.
