    Default Stonehenge

    Below are a few shots from my recent study abroad trip to England. We took a group of 21 students to England for 12 days. One of our stops was Stonehenge. Stonehenge is a world heritage site and only very few people are allowed to actually enter the stone circle. Our group was able to gain private access. Here are some shots:

    This first one is Louis and me.

    This is a group shot of all of my students. I am the tall guy just to the right of center.

    This is a smaller group. All of these students are actual majors in my theatre program.

    Me too.... I'm so jealous... Especially that you were allowed to get so close to the stones......

    You could also use that crevice to mount something nice! It seems though that the site brought the druid out of you!

    Great photos Bruce! I have only been to visit the actual site once, but have driven past it a number of times whilst driving down the hell that is the A303. You were so lucky to get to see the inside as pretty much most of us plebians only ever get to see it from a distance of 20 foot!

    What a wonderful opportunity for you and the students Bruce! Way cool! And a drink from a puddle on the rocks of Stonehenge must surely have magical powers!

    The druids probably washed their face there as well...what a part of HISTORY!

    I've never been..but I will go someday...and Kerry and I can have proper fish and chips and I'll wash my face in the same place

    ?Washing? I thought B was drinking the water.

    That would have been very cool to go there -- especially to be in amongst the stones!
