London Calling

London! We're in London! And so far the idea that people from Mozart to Bob Dylan have walked on these ancient city streets is really messing with Brent's mind, as is the jet lag I think! While the rest of the band napped Brent & I managed to walk around and see everything from a giant gothic looking clock (Big Ben!) to a royal palace (Buckingham palace!) to the local grocery mart (with little to no ingredients- the Brits: living up to their food quality stigma!) all while shooting around on the infamous Undergroud Tube system. It completely feels like a dream to me especially since, as Brent pointed out, the artistic history of this place in so ingrained in us without even realizing it; you can actually go to the library next to our hotel and see original, handwritten Beethoven scores, go downriver to see the site of the Globe Theater where Shakespeare thrived, go to museums packed with art history and then, (in my own little twisted brain) think of every scene in An American Werewolf in London! Such an unexpected, instantly recognizable, wide ranging influence on American culture...werewolves and all!
