Hey did you see that rock? It could've been in Harry Potter

                   On Dancer on Prancer on Vixen and Blixen on Cupid on Prancer and Dancer and Harry Potter? What? Ascending the steps of temple station, preparing myself to be transported to a land of mystery and magic I find the first twist of the night, a changed tour guide. Little did I know that this was only the beginning of a night full of confusion, left turns and a world of Harry Potter that no one had ever seen before, literally J.K Rowling herself would’ve been lost at the vampire story.
So were off with the muggle, down alley ways and through the streets of temple where she begins her mythological explanation, or rather complication to what is meant to be the realm of Harry Potter. In a whirlwind of mythology and stickers we go from Australia House where supposedly Gringots was filmed, to the theater vampire’s were first introduced, separated by a narrowing hallway we found Jack the Ripper. 

Now this is relevant because Nicolas Flamel was a real person and is rumored to have the philosopher’s stone and still be walking the earth in some form or another because his grave was found empty. Now if it’s been hard for you to follow thus far let me clear it up a bit.

Our tour guide who is a muggle with a wand that lights up is walking us through places J. K. Roling the author of the Harry Potter series who was once sued for ripping off another wizard book but won the case would have modeled things in the book after and one place where an actual scene in the movie was filmed while giving us a random tour of London and places similar to what she thinks would have been in the book and a street full of stores where they sold books relevant because Rowling as an author and would have loved this street and believed it was magic and where while in a pub a real wizard that did magic spells drew the same sketch as another man in the pub and how the Knights Templar were the richest monks who guarded the king’s money but were thought to be sorcerers. 

Now that you’re up to speed and clear on what was going on, we found ourselves at Kings Cross station, platform 9 ¾ and finally I remember what the purpose of this tour was HARRY POTTER, now someone just has to hunt down our guide and let her know that.
