LONDON – JULY 10 – FRIDAY

This is our last day discovering London. After spending several hours late last night reviewing what we have not see we realized that we would leave a lot of sights for our next trip. With that in mind we started out early today leaving our...

LOOK WHAT GOD HAS DONE

DOING EVIL IN GOD’S SIGHT
