As Cardiff is the capital of Wales, the seat of parliament is found here in Cardiff Bay. I was able to visit it and I was surprised as, in contrast to most parliaments, this is a truly cutting edge, eco-friendly building. The light enters through enormous windows, and the rest of the structure is made almost entirely of wood. There are stunning views of the bay front, so it's especially nice on a sunny day. There are many ethnic restaurants in the area, and it's especially beautiful at night, when the colored lighting creates really amazing effects. I reached Cardiff Bay Barrage Coastal Path from Penarth, a small town south of Cardiff.
