Me in front of the National Art Museum. Lots and lots of paintings! Too many in fact, it was so overwhelming. I appreciated all the art, but since I'm not very educated when it comes to that, I felt I wasn't able to appreciate it :( Shane, you would have loved it!
Stonehenge...had to see it! :)
Only the best for the Zylstras!
Another one we had to go to.
St. Paul's Cathedral. I'm missing the dome which is the most famous part, but the whole building is so massive its impossible to get from up close. Inside, where we were not able to take pictures, was even more impressive. The entire ceiling is enlaid with gold and the most gorgeous art. Pillars and such gave a very cathedral feeling to it. We also went to the service on Sunday and heard the choir sing. My God, the most amazingly perfect acoustic building ever!
Big Ben, Parliment, and The Eye....more on that later
Shakespeare's Globe...aka his theater
Buckingham Palace. It was huge. The queen was in residence as they had a procession or something in the early morning. Later when we were walking in what seemed to be the aristocratic neighborhood around the palace, we saw Prince Charles, his brother (andrew?), and Camilla drive out in three separate cars. It was pretty cool
Windsor Castle...Queen something had a cool doll collection
