Another field trip with Renato


He took us to the cathedral.  Most Brazilian’s are Catholic.  The cathedral was being renovated on the outside.



We still got to go inside.  The inside is made with wood instead of gold, because they ran out of gold.



The woodwork was done by slaves.  There is hidden passages within this cathedral that the slaves tried to use to escape.



This is one of the passages.



The crypt was under these stairs in front of the front alter.



This cathedral wasn’t as cold as some of them I’ve been in because of all the woodwork.

Every time we were with Renato, he was working on his English and asking us questions about the church.
