tidbits learned about Big Benjamin:
Big Ben is actually the name of the BELL at the top of the tower, not the actual tower itself, oh...
plus Big Ben weighs in over 13 tons
too bad it cost 14 pounds to get into Westminster Abbey, but not to worry, we'll be back to go inside
i was the most excited to see this sculpture - Rodin's Burghers of Calais - definitely learned about it in my humanities class last semester, thank you Professor Swenson, it's pretty much the coolest
and yes parliament is in session, noted by the flag flying over Victoria tower
there. now you know a little more about London, congrats
