*I fought the law*
This lady however, blatantly flaunted the rules, stepped over the cable, and got up close and personal with the stones all the while wearing a grin that said "I traveled here, paid my money, and by gosh I'm gonna get my picture taken next to Stonehenge". I'm kinda impressed with her ballsiness.
Me, I obeyed the rules and followed the crowds. Since there were a couple of other sites to see that day I bypassed the audio tour headphones (ickiness factor might have contributed to that) and did a quick walkaround snapping pics.
Follow the leader, lemming style
Shoulda saved my money and took pics from out there
While I am glad I took the time to visit Stonehenge, I was slightly disappointed and I really can't put my finger on why except that it was so *touristy*. Perhaps if I would've done the audio tour bit I might've felt a little less letdown? A stop later in the day to the Avebury henges more than made up for my ennui about Stonehenge but that's gonna be a separate post due to me being on my wireless card in a slow-arsed edge network while writing this. I have a ton of photos from there and want to post most of them and this connection is soooo not conducive to that.
See, I really was there!
