Day trip to Rye

On Friday we drove out to Rye. The drive reminded me of travel in Okinawa. Even though we weren't going too far (maybe 70 miles), with all the stop-and-go traffic and small meandering roads outside of the city, it took several hours to get there.

Rye is quite nice - it's a very old village. It has some very very old building (things from the 1300s). Here are a few pictures I snapped while borrowing my friend's camera.

This last picture is of a small door in the side of one of the original gates to the town. It was built in 1300 and is about 50 feet thick!
