It was time for our afternoon Mad Max tour. Gary was our guide and driver, and we had perhaps 25 people on board our van -- only one other U.S. couple, and everybody else was from all over the globe.
First stop: Lacock, a village in the Cotswolds which dates from the 13th century and has many limewashed half-timbered and stone houses. If some of these views look familiar, it's probably because you saw them in Pride and Prejudice (the cool BBC version that has played on PBS in the States -- with Colin Firth looking decidedly hot even while grumpy). And one of the professors from the Harry Potter films has a "house" in this village.
I do like a green door, don't you?
Yep, it's us! And we're in the Cotswolds!
