Tower of London

Got to see the infamous Tower of London today and had a HILARIOUS yeoman tour guide / beefeater. The Brits and their terms confuse me, but my god this man was hysterical. Very Eddie Izzard-esque.

Lots of history there, obviously, and this picture is of Traitor's Gate. Lots of ominous history there, actually... but that's kind of how most of London is, it seems!

Saw the Crown Jewels. Quite sparkly. Seems kinda silly to have these insanely valuable diamonds locked in glass boxes for decades only to be used to reign in a new Sovereign. Crazy Brits and your monarchy!!

Walked back along the Tower Bridge, which is gorgeous and is NOT London Bridge itself, actually.
