Booked the Ryanair flight to Rome (details on the website by the time you get this) and the boat to Tassie. Went back to the Railway Museum, because we hadn't quite finished the other day. We caught a ride on a miniture train, I showed Kate the Royal Train section, and we checked out the model train display. Tony called and said he'd be near the Minster soon with Kate's bag (we had managed to miss each previous attempt to transfer the bag!), so we caught a road-train across - there's one that runs between the Minster and the Railway Museum. Another call from Catherine Delaney - saying that either Tracy or Tricia would call either later that day or on Friday. It won't surprise you by now to learn that we didn't get that call. Looked through the crypt of the Minster while we were there. It had a very interesting history, with archelogical finds again (can't dig without finding something ancient here in York!). It had the old Roman building, then the early Norman church and finally the current medieval Minster - with a map superimposing the size and shape of each. There's even an old Roman culvert still draining away into the River Ouse. While we were down there, the choral evensong started - so we listened to that for a bit. Watched 'From Dusk till Dawn' - it's rather scary, and definitely B-grade. Sort of like Buffy on really bad drugs.
