This time the mine was a coal mine. This one was a lot more intense then the last one. We couldn’t bring down anything with a battery in it. We had hard hats with head lamps that were attached to batteries and a gas mask. “Just in case” they said. Our tour guide was pretty cool. He asked about Donny Osmond when he found out we were from Utah. He said that Donny came and did a concert because his ancestry is from here or something. (Sometimes there accents can be hard to understand!) I just thought it was funny because we were in some small town in Wales, in a coal mine, and the tour guide was asking about the Osmond’s and actually knew a lot about them.
The castle we went to today was built at first as a fortress but then in the eighteen hundreds was done up as a fairytale castle. They painted the rooms and added cute furniture. Miranda and I danced to Love Story by Taylor Swift to really get in the mood of it. Overall, we definitely saw a lot of Wales from our seats in the bus.
