Cities of the Underworld

Has anyone else been watching this show in the History channel? This show takes a look at what's under the streets of the biggest cities in the world like London, Paris, Budapest, New York and Philadelphia. Did you know that there are underground bunkers and hospitals under the city of London that were used by Churchill. The only thing they forgot to build within this underworld was a bathroom which meant Churchill was peeing into a bucket while he was hidden away.

There's also a secret subway stop under the Waldorf Astoria Hotel that was used by F.D.R. so that he wouldn't have to get out of his car and walk anywhere that the public would see that he was handicapped due to polio.

The Freemason Underground show was just on Monday and in watching it we discovered there is a fort in the Philadelphia area called Fort Mifflin that we never were aware of before. It's apparently near the airport and from the looks of it, it isn't open to the public. This particular show revealed the Masons that were our founding fathers designed buildings and even cities that mimicked the Masonic symbols.

It's on Monday's at 9:00 EST, and totally engrossing if you're into things that are secret, underground and off the beaten path!

My wife has been literally enthralled with this show.
And yes, it is fascinating.
Never know what's down there.
I keep waiting for them to run into a Teen Age Ninja Mutant Turtle. 8-)

I watched this show the other night while I was in the hotel and couldn't sleep. It was very cool!

If you ever get the chance, don't miss the catacombs under the city of Paris...Creepy, freaky and cool.
