London Pictures, Take 2

So, whatever. Yeah, this is the Globe Theatre, blah blah blah. Something about Shakespeare, and he's like, a great playwright, or something. I don't know. I think I learned about him in high school. Sadly, this was indeed exactly how I felt. It is in the location of the actual Globe Theatre, which was torn down at some point. The fact that the people of London tore the theatre down, makes me think that we've made a whole lot more out of this guy than truly is deserved. Am I going to English Teacher hell now? Probably. But I was already going, considering I swear "littler" should be a word.

Look kids! Big Ben!


Westminster Abbey is OLD! And they have added a new line of sculptures, all are "modern day martyrs." Each martyr was persecuted for religious beliefs and taken from every continent (well, I think Antartica is left out). The American winner is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I went to London one time. I missed a week of basketball practice in 9th grade and I'm still pissed about it. Bottom line I hated the English for a long time because my folks thought it would be a great learning experience for a 14, 13, and 8 year old kid. I think it's dumb to take kids places like that. They should have left us back home and paid that hot baby sitter they used for us when I was like 8...Becky.
Cool pics!

I saw plenty of kids touring around...the best was at the Tower of London checking out the "package protector" in Henry the VIII's body armor. Little boys giggling and pointing and little girls preparing to be very disappointed in the future, as the size was oh so unrealistic :)
