These photos are of the keep. It has existed since the 1000s and was used by the Normans.
I really enjoyed our visit and am glad to have found a fun traveling companion in my roommate, Ellie. I will post more photos of our afternoon, which was spent wandering the streets of Cardiff, tomorrow. Today was a bad day. Nothing particularly terrible happened I've just been a bit blue all afternoon. I'm going to do some homework, drink tea, work out, and work on super secret craft projects (involving bits of felt and scissors). I think crunches and creativity will put me in a better mood.
