Some simple observations on Stonehenge and Bath...
Stonehenge:
- It's cold and windy
- There's grass.  It's green.  Quite possibly because it's allways raining here.  I already have a cold (started sniffling as the plane was pulling in to KL - a premonition?)
- There are no nekkid witches dancing around as far as I can tell.  (I was attempting to do my impression of a nekkid warlock at the winter solstice, but Kel told me to put my little weather affected worm away and stop embarrasing myself.  Damn that voice of reason!)
- There's rocks
- You can take photos of said rocks (not said nekkid witches)
You can even pay money to get within 5 meters of them to take photos.  Or you can use the zoom function on your camera.  See attached photo.

Bath:
- It's not AS cold and windy.
- There's lots of cool buildings about.  The motto of the pom: If it works, stick to it.  ALL of the buildings are almost exactly the same!
- The Romans discovered hot running water here, and channeled it into a bath.  Ingenious, really!  Everyone's been bathing there ever since.  What's not so ingenious is they used to bathe outdoors.  I hope that water's hot!

Seriously though, Bath is one of the most picturesque towns I've ever been to.  The sand stone buildings are gorgeous, and they're all terraced up and down the hills.  There's some neat architecture here too - notably the old bathing houses, pump houses and church.  Kel wants to come back when we get a little more time to have a bath and I wouldn't mind checking out a little more of the history, so I guess we'll be seeing more of this beautiful town soon.
