Canterbury, October 8, 2005

When April with his showers sweet with fruit
The drought of March has pierced unto the root

Then do folk long to go on pilgrimage,
And palmers to go seeking out strange strands,
To distant shrines well known in sundry lands.
And specially from every shire’s end
Of England they to Canterbury wend,
The holy blessed martyr there to seek
Who helped them when they lay so ill and weal

Ready to start upon my pilgrimage
To Canterbury, full of devout homage,
There came at nightfall to that hostelry
Some nine and twenty in a company
Of sundry persons who had chanced to fall
In fellowship, and pilgrims were they all
That toward Canterbury town would ride.

– The General Prologue to the Canterbury Tales
Geoffrey Chaucer

This Saturday was the Field Study to Canterbury, it was amazing
