Europe Collection 1
England is my "home away from home".
Several of these are scenes from the Her Majesty's Palace and Tower Of
London, including the rather formidable Raven. A handful of these
ravens are carefully kept at the Tower for, as tradition tells us, if
the ravens should leave, the Kingdom will fall. They have their
very own Ravenmaster Yeoman Warder, roomy quarters (they're free on the
grounds during the day) and one clipped wing each. Intelligent and
curious, the also have a nasty bite, so visitor beware.
Cambridge is my favorite of the
university towns. The River Cam flows lazily along "The Backs" and
colleges along its shore each have a bridge across. The view of
King's College Chapel is from "The Backs", as well.
Sacre Coeur stands atop Montmartre in
Paris, a white sentinel that is visible from any other "high" place in
in the city, including the Eiffel Tower and the Arc d'Triumphe.
Montmartre remains something of an artist colony. The front steps
of Sacre Coeur and the small plaza at their base are home to those
enjoying a spectacular view over the city of Paris. You can ride
up Montmartre on a "cable car" or take the steps - personally, I
recommend riding up and walking down.
