Stonehenge was something husband really wanted to see, andit was gorgeous. You can’t really tell how large these stones are until you arethere, but my guess is that they sit at least 20 feet tall. Driving out to seethem was beautiful too. We saw the green, lush country side, filled withmeadows, red tulips and lambs, and witnessed a part of England that you don’t experiencejust staying in the city of London.
A major highlight to me was meeting the people in England. Ilove British dry humor, and in their accents the jokes sound twice as funny!One bus driver was explaining to us that Big Ben is the bell inside the tower,and the man it was named after was named Benjamin (something…. I never reallypay attention to last names), and the Brits were glad that the bell wasn’t namedafter a man named Richard because the tower would be called Big…… instead ofBig Ben! Ummm yea, the humor was borderline inappropriate ( okay, okay pretty inappropriate) and of course crackedme up.
England was just 1/3 of our trip! Stay tuned to hear aboutParis and Rome!
