Hey Huskies! Today was quite an adventure! I went to bed, bath and beyond! And no, I don’t mean the store. This morning we went on another group field trip. Our first stop of the day was Stonehenge and on the three hour ride, I enjoyed a nice nap. When we arrived at Stonehenge, we walked about 15 minutes to the stones themselves. After seeing hundreds and hundreds of photos of Stonehenge throughout my life, I didn’t really expect much other than seeing something cool. But when I finally got to see them up close, I realized how miraculous they really are. First I was incredibly surprised by their size! It was an otherworldly experience. I also didn’t realize how perfectly straight each of the stones are, especially the ones that were on top. I was so amazed! After Stonehenge, we stopped at the Jane Austen Center. Although I had to do some work while I was there, it was an awesome museum. The highlight of my time there was getting to dress up like characters in her novels. Here’s a picture of me and the Crowley’s daughter enjoying some tea with Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. We had a great time!
To add to the busy day, we also toured the Roman baths. This was another incredible experience! I was able to walk around and explore a temple that is thousands of years old. History has never seemed so real to me as when I drank the water from the baths, which they thought would cure people from any disease. (Don’t worry, it’s not the gross green stagnant water you see in this picture!) I was expecting the water to have some magical taste or something to make it so special but do not be disenchanted like I was. It was basically warm tap water, but I am proud to say I’ve had water from the Roman baths!
