We walk around the Globe

Had our tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre today. Preettyy interesting... there will be more later... but we got to see a tech rehearsal for an upcoming play, Much Ado About Nothing which made me feel like an insider! One of the actor's even said, "Line, please," like you hear on TV or whatever when they forget their lines and someone yelled it out to him.

In addition, the Butler from the TV show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (Geoffrey) is in the play! So we got to see him onstage doin his thing.

Also got to walk over the Tower Bridge today.

But didn't quite have time to stop and see the jewels and the decapitating block! Will come back soon, not to worry.

Saw the Royal Courts of Justice building. Gotta be honest, I'm not quite sure what goes on there... wasn't able to go inside either.. but it was beautiful on the outside for sure.
