Friday afternoon we took a two hour bus ride out of London to the South East coast of England to the towns of Canterbury and Dover. In Canterbury we encountered a shock of cultural melding between old and new. For example next to the Canterbury Cathedral, where Thomas Beckett was murdered, is a Starbucks. Go figure. I was still intrigued by this Cathedral with the elaborate tomb of the Black Prince and also the solitary candel representing a memorial for Thomas Beckett. Then back on the Bus and on to Dover, where i finally saw the beach. From the quaint town of Dover we could see acroos the English Channel to Calais and the Coast of France. From the beach we looked up to see the white cliffs of Dover, which holds the historic war tunnels which we were given a tour through. Above the tunnels was a castle and Roman Lighthouse, we were able to explor. The view of the English countryside was breathtaking as we climbed to the castle parapets. It was a very awe-inspiring day, full of history while making our own memories.
