York, England fascinated me and captivated my imagination! “York is a walled city in northeast England that was founded by the Ancient Romans. The city walls form a walkway on both sides of the River Ouse,” according the Wikipedia.
The Roman Emperor Constantine was named Emperor of Rome in the Principa or headquarters, which is now under the York Minster.
As we began our exploration of the medieval city of York…we decided to put first things first and thus visit a fudge shop where we purchased some inspiring confections. After this we divided, in order to conquer, and pursued the ancient city.
Suddenly I happened upon a gentleman performing one of the famous magician Houdini’s favorite escape feats.
Now if that is not enough for you…there was also a knife thrower!
I neglected to mention that the knife thrower also juggled knives while he rode a ten foot tall unicycle.
All of this excitement happened before our lunch at the Gin House which was located on the third floor and had excellent food and libations.
York was such a mysterious and inviting city that I want to return. The ghosts of history are everywhere you look. Again…I will say that Time Travel is possible…as indeed you are transported to York’s medieval past with every step you take in this gracious place.
