London!

Any Americans in the group?  You on holiday or are you here to learn the language?
-Ravenmaster at the Tower of London

We’ve been so busy frolicking that it’s hard to get pictures up fast enough!  Spent yesterday at the Tower and today at the Globe Theatre watching The Merry Wives of Windsor, and are going to Chawford, Salisbury, and Stonehenge tomorrow, before heading home to Cambridge for a relaxing weekend.  I think I may need a vacation from this vacation before this is done…

The Queen's House, so called because Henry VIII had it built for Anne Boleyn upon their marriage...and thoughtfully imprisoned her there later prior to her execution.  Delightful man, Henry.

We also got to see Wicked as a group, and though I liked it, I have to admit Les Mis was a lot better.  I’ll get pictures from the Tower up as soon as I can, in the meantime I’ve discovered another gastronomic gem in Kensington:  the Kensington Creperie!  All crepes all the time, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert and all delicious.  Do check it out if ever you’re in the borough!
