We hiked the coastline above the White Cliffs of Dover to South Foreland Lighthouse, built in 1843.  It was the first lighthouse to use an electric light.

Notice the TV screen on the wall.  During most of our meal, an infomercial in Turkish aired, urging viewers to take advantage of this wonderful deal on hemorrhoid cream and spray!  It was quite graphic . . . not your usual mealtime entertainment for sure!
