Where I stayed
Highlights include: a sunny afternoon in Hyde Park and jitterbug dancing my first night in town, a handful of West End shows, Westminster Abbey, and the Portabello Road market.
Big disappointment: I didn't get to visit and see a show as a groundling at the Globe! They were sold-out. I actually cried! Guess that just means a I have to come back again...
Today I took a coach tour daytrip out to see Stonehenge, which was really neat. It's so impressive how it is still standing after all this time and of course it makes you wonder what purpose they served. Aside from housing one of the original 4 surviving Magna Cartas, Salisbury Cathedral was actually quite interesting and more historical than I thought. Then it was on to Bath, also much more interesting than I had anticipated, with quite a lot of the original baths still around the spring itself.
Then back in town, I went to see the Comedy Store Players improv show and now I am going to call it a night and make it home. I am headed to Stratford-upon-Avon early in the morning to get my Shakespeare fix - since I missed the Globe here and couldn't get tickets to see Jude Law in Hamlet here in town, which is getting really great reviews!
Love you all - God bless!
