Monday, June 4, 2018:   Mark and Paula toured the Tower of London
Billed as Her Majesty's Royal Palace, it is huge.  It is also known as the Fortress Palace.
Red seems to be a popular color for the British.
A model gave a better perspective of the complexity and size.
This place dates back to the 1600s.  Lots of visitors.  There is a waiting line to get in first thing in the morning.
With lions on the loose, Paula decided to don some armor for protection.
Tours are often given to students to teach history.  After all, history is prolog to our future.
There is a huge collection of armor for people and horses.
The crossbow was a lethal weapon hundreds of years ago. 
The king's bed chamber. 
Lots of song and ceremony as it might have been done hundreds of years ago.

Quote of the day:    They lived a different life style.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
