kissams in london- day 4- 13

i mentioned earlier how a great docent can bring a place to life.  that includes my good friend neill.  here he talks about the different rooms that someone would have to walk through before having an audience with the king.  and how you can't show your back to any likeness of the king, and how one would bow to each throne, even if the king wasn't seated there.  (there was one trick room, set up with a throne to bow at, and at your back, a painting of the king.)  there seemed to be a theme.  first people were ushered through armory rooms (or 'fear me' rooms.)  there were opulent rooms, ('envy me' rooms) and room after room with empty thrones to bow to ('worship me' rooms). . . just some mind games before actually meeting the king.
