We also went to the Temple Church (here it is Dan Brown fans) where the Knights if Templar used to have as their main headquarters. Although it was redone post war it was still super intricate and they had original knight statues from 1200 still intact. NEAT!
Side note*** My Uncle is a huge Three Stooges fan, I know I know, I still love him every bit as much... anyway prior to me leaving he told me some line from the Three Stooges that when they saw a Barrister in a wig they said "whats with the airedale", so now whenever I think of a British Barrister in a wig, that comes to mind. ***
So without further a doubt, Uncle Harry I saw my first REAL "Airedale" today in court. We were able to sit in for about 15 minutes on a court proceeding with wigs, gowns and all. It was just a pretty rudimentary proceeding but I was in awe. I was also kind of surprised by the wigs, I was expecting these long curls but rather they were short with kind of a rat tail, sexy I know. Also when I remarked that I was kind of surprised at how beat up one of the guys wig was and how small it was for his noggin, my Professor told us thats a good sign of status, getting a wig passed down. So when I saw the barrister with a busted ass weave my first impression was wrong, he was actually doing pretty well for himself.
I apologize if that was boring for your liking!
