History – in the Tower

by | Nov 11, 2008 | Fiction Book Reviews | 0 comments

Our first stop was the Tower of London. Known for it’s relationship to torture and death of some of the ‘best and brightest’, it is also a grand palace and armory – and home of the Crown Jewels.

The most surprising, and maybe a bit disappointing, thing for me was that this mysterious tower stands right in the middle of a hub of ‘big city’ life. I suppose I expected it to rise out of the dark forest or sit in the shadows of some murky corridor of London, but it is plopped in the middle of some busy streets. So much for the ‘romantic’ mind set, eh?

Once you get inside though…then you begin to feel the switch in time – back to a day when things were quite different than they are today.
