La Pastora 31/8/13

Today the USKCCS group went to La Pastora, we started off in the Plaza, walked around the area a little and then went to the Arturo Michelena Museum.

The bell tower of the church is amazing and sadly my sketch does not do it justice.
The houses around the square have all sorts of interesting details and on our walk around the block we saw little balconies, some amazing fret work in doors,  a bridge from colonial times,  too much to take in and it really wasn´t possible to sketch.  Everyone else was taking masses of photos. 

The museum is a gem, it was Michelenas studio and when he died his widow made it her home and eventually left it to the nation.   I had never been and it is embarrassingly easy to get there.  A bus almost goes from my door to the door of the museum. 

Hoy el grupo USKCCS se reunio en La Pastora, primero en la plaza, hicimos una vuelta por la cuadra, entramos la iglesia y luego fuimos al museo.

 Fue el taller de Arturo Michelena y despues de su muerte su viuda vivio alli y luego la dejo a la nacion.  Nunca habia ido y me da pena porque hay un por puesto que va casi de puerta a puerta.  Vale la pena conocerlo.
