Parliament and views

Today we went on a tour of the Parliament building.  It was really cool!!!  There were a lot of gold things.  Gold statues, gold chandeliers, gold everything!!! [Well, maybe not everything, but a lot.]  My favourite was the Crown of Hungary.  It was pretty dirty, but it was so cool!!!  I also liked the sceptre and the orb.  [The orb is something that a king or queen would hold when they were crowned.]


P.S.  The bottom of the stained glass windows was made to look like curtains!

Great view of Parliament!

At the organ concert

Have you ever heard an organ?  It’s beautiful!  The organ concert I went to included an antique organ, a trumpet, and a singer.  [They weren’t all used in the same song though.]  The concert was held in the Basilica, which is a great big, e-NOR-mous church.  It’s truly HUGE!!!!!  [There’s lots and lots of gold tiles, you may see that in the pictures.]
