Kerzerho Megaliths

Erdeven, France

There are 195 megaliths in Kerzerho, aligned east to west. They extend over 200 metres in 5 rows. Dating from between 5,000 to 2,000 BC, they have of course suffered over the years. In fact only a few centuries ago there were 1130 stones in 11 rows: the structure must have been 2 kilometres long by 65 metres wide.

Some rocks. No charge to park or look round. A few good short walks through the stones. Not sure we saw them all though due to pretty poor signage in French (and nothing in English)

This historical site has amazing energy. The positive karma was very surreal. It filled me with peace and serenity. I felt like I had time traveled through a wormhole. Like the tv show Outlander. Waves of calm washed over me. The local guide Kate Masters told me the ancient druids possibly used local psychedlic mushrooms and henbane type flora to dance with the stones in ancient rituals. I played some clannad and enya Celtic music while here.

Great rocks of impressive size, good parking space, but very little information on the site. Left wanting.

Best to go off season so you can walk between the stones

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
