kissams in london- day 2- 1
day 2- Westminster Abbey. i had no idea how immense this place was going to be. i nearly overloaded on chapels/ churches/ cathedrals/ abbey and whatnot on this one day. it surprised me how they've almost become a hoarder's paradise for tombs. (we did find and possibly walk over darwin, faraday, kelvin, and newton- and then other greats like ben jonson, handel, kipling, and olivier. not to mention all the royals.) we waited in the rain on a long line- thankfully it moved swiftly. while waiting someone started whistling 'winchester cathedral.' so for the rest of the week when i wanted to speak of westminster, i said, 'winchester.' grrr.
