Living in disestablishment

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

As promised, here are some photos from inside the convent where I live at the moment. I should have shared these earlier, but there's no internet in the convent!

I live on the first floor, in the middle wing of the very large building. There are perhaps 150 rooms in total, across wings with names like Bethany and San Damiano. It's very quiet, days go by without seeing another person.

See yesterday's post, In A Convent Garden, for the first set of photos from the grounds and gardens. Feedback very welcome.

In A Convent Garden

Monday, September 6th, 2010

This weekend, I took some photos in the garden of the former convent where I currently live, St Clare's in Harolds Cross. There's some historical information about the Poor Clares on their website. A lot of people think it must be very spooky to live in an abandoned convent but I rather like it.

I'll post some photos from inside soon enough. Let me know what you think in the comments.
