Salisbury Cathedral is very famous because its beauty and magnificence. Today we have been there and we have been able to admire this great religious bulilding:
High Street in Salisbury is the avenue between the cathedral and the comercial Bridge Street and walking through it I’ve seen that there are some mathematical pictures on the floor:
These pictures are advertisements of some important monuments near Salisbury and I’ve seen my next destination:
There are only 8 miles between the wonderful Stonehenge and me. Tomorrow will be the expected day!

Rochester was one of the favourite cities of Charles Dickens who lived here in a house that you can see today. It has been raining all the morning and the university of Greenwich was celebrating the graduation of the students so all the city was full of people with umbrellas and we haven’t been able to visit the cathedral. But… walking through the Esplanade you can see this house:
The house is in number 3 Esplanade near the famous bridge. Sometimes it is very impostant look at the floor in spite of the facades because in front of this house… an infinite!
What a beautiful surprise in this rainy day!
My holidays have begun and I’m going to spend some days in London and in South England. I’ve been in Canterbury in my first day in England and therefore my mathematical tourism has also begun in this beautiful city. Canterbury is very famous because Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1343-1400) included its name in his famous Canterbury Tales and also because of its great cathedral. The building is wonderful and you can see some royal tombs (Henry IV and his wife Joan of Navarre) inside. For our mathematical aim, we can see the beautiful mosaics in the centre of the cathedral:
They are very beautiful, aren’t they? Do you remember the Sierpinski triangle?
