Game of Thrones - I was there!

Last September Len and I were in Spain and spent two nights in Girona.  Girona's historic center consists of a lot of narrow, stone-paved lanes, several with long series of steps. The first day we could not even get close to the Cathedral for they were shooting some scenes for season 6 of the HBO mini-series,  Game of Thrones

Last Sunday night's episode, Blood of My Blood, I spotted the main Cathedral in Girona set right in the middle of King's Landing.
Pretty wild, here stands the High Sparrow, played by Jonathan Pryce, next to Queen Marguery Tyrell, played by Natalie Dormer. 
And here is Len coming down from the Cathedral.
The crew were just folding up all the scaffolds and film equipment.   We were told some of the crew were staying at our hotel which was pretty hush, hush.  We never saw anyone for they kept different hours than we did.  But there was always a crowd of people outside trying to catch a chance of seeing one of the cast members.

This was my Christmas card photo last night.  What a great experience.
