was warned, and I'm warning you. .A trip
to Stonehenge is disappointing. .However,
there are some things you have to do -- even after being warned. .Stonehenge
is built at a "Y" intersection of two main roads. There
is no reason that the roads should ever have been built so close to
this site. .My guide said one of the
dumbest questions she ever heard was, "Why was Stonehenge built
so close to the road -- 5000 years ago?" .There
were thousands of tourists and ropes keeping them back. .Way
back. .In the past you could walk among
the ruins and touch the stones. .No more.
.Now you need a good zoom lens to get
your photos. Under those circumstances, it didn't take long to have
"been there and done that." .And
after doing that, be sure to stroll medieval Salisbury and its cathedral.
