Nov 2012: I reach the end of the walk and find Christ

I walk on from the Museum of Revolution, that’s an interesting sculpture.

On the left is the ex Convent of de San Hipolito while on the right is the Inglesia San Judas Tadeo Church

I walk down the church after crossing the street, no mean feat…bloody traffic

even at this late hour, it was full of worshippers.

I sat down for a bit and felt peace, it is a nice place, very calm. Simple. But I was curious about St. Judas. I got seriously confused with Judas Iscariot. Only now that I figured out that he was somebody else, called as Judas Thaddeus.

I come out and notice these absolutely beautiful carvings on the front.

the towers are covered with what looks like tiles.

By this time, I am dead tired, it was a very long walk, about 6kms or so, and i had to walk back now, so headed back.

Damn witches, leaving their vehicles parked willy nilly all over the place.
