It was definitely my favorite day in England so far, and we ended it perfectly by watching Pride and Prejudice when we got back to the centre. And yes, we got way too excited when Stourhead came on the screen. Everyone "loved it -- most ardently."

Everyone had heard plenty of warnings about how cold it would be, but our coach driver said it was the most beautiful day he had ever seen there. It was incredible to see Stonehenge in person. It's on every screensaver here at the Centre, in a million textbooks and magazines -- seeing the real thing was definitely something.

NOTE: That picture wasn't actually taken in the Oval Office...and Obama is made of wax. But he IS sort of indirectly involved with the picture; it's in Madame Tussaud's wax museum, and all Americans were given free admission that day in honor of his inauguration. I guess Obama saved me 25 pounds his first day of being president! So far, so good. We'll see.

Being flamingos! They make weird noises.
Penguins! They seem so dang happy.
My favorite sign by far!
Trying to vanish the glass, Harry-style!
