The most amazing part about it was how the buildings were built into the rock cliff. How is this even done? How does it stay put for all of these years? Here are some pictures so you can see for yourself what I mean.....
Before we started hiking up the hill to get to the city, we ate at their little creperie that was on the bottom level of the town. It was the cutest building and the cutest set up. I was in complete heaven. The owner nor the waitress spoke any English. It was so fun to order in French from what I remember from my French language studies. To get to the restaurant part, you have to climb up these little narrow stairs while ducking your head. When I was up there sitting and waiting for our crepes to come, I was beaming. Nate said, "Why are you smiling so much?" I told him, how could I not smile so much!? This is just the perfect setting. Here we are in this amazing town with a castle and city built on a cliff, we are sitting here eating at this French creperie, about to eat these authentic crepes, there are French people all around us speaking their language....it was just the perfect day and of course I would be beaming. I was perfectly content and happy with my life at that moment! ;)
It was interesting to compare the ending points or highlights I guess you could say of different religions. In our church we believe that the greatest thing Christ did was being resurrected so that we too can be resurrected some day and live again just like he lives now. He has a perfect body and lives today, and because of this, we have that blessing of living forever as well with resurrected perfect bodies.
This walk that we took completely left this part out. Yes, of course he died for us on the cross and that is important and crucial as well. It should definitely be included on the walk probably in the second to last monument station. But it seems like the end of the walk would be about him living today, not about his death. Interesting why we don't wear crosses around our necks as well like other Christian faiths. It isn't because we aren't Christians and don't believe in the cross and that he died for our sins, it is because his death isn't our primary focus. Our focus is his life and how he lives today.
