|Last Saturday I wanted to take the 5 churches tour,|
but I got up too late.
|Black dress Xhiliration - H&M flats|
So this Saturday, I got up really early, picked up a friend and
headed out to the old part of the city to take the tour.
We made it on time - well the "old area" is only 10 minutes away.
|St. Francis of Asis|
The main idea of the tour is to see in what shape the churches are.
Which is really bad, as you can see there is mold on the walls
and water on the floor of St Francis of Asis.

Most of them are basically falling apart, with no government support.
In some of them, work is already in progress.

The private sector is raising funds to restore the churches but, there is so much
work to do.
The tours are free of charge and aim to create awareness.
|St Joseph's Golden Altar|
It was mostly walking and it took over 3 hours.
|Our Lady of Mercy|
Luckily, we had the most amazing day.
The sun was out...
and we had the bluest of skies.
