This is a series from the Utrecht Dom/Cathedral
from when Astrid/Picturit and I were there on January 15.Besides the cathedral's interior, Astrid and I climbed the Dom Tower to the very top.
This is CLOSE to the top, 318 steps up (out of 465) to the Latern, where the 50 carillon bells live.
Together, the 50 bells weigh 26,000 kg (57,320 lbs).
This octangular space is without glass in the windows to reduce the influence of the wind and to allow the sound of the bells to be heard throughout the whole city. While we were in there, the wind and rain howled around us.
Let the bells ring in your weekend!
[Today Donica and I fly back to our Atlanta home.]
