The Old Borough Market:
|Yes, it's real.|
|Miss Chef buys lunch.|
Then a short walk over to the Globe Theatre. We had tickets to see All's Well That Ends Well.
It was amazing being in such a faifthful reproduction of a 500-year old theater, with the beautiful wood and painted stage around us. Yes, those people stood for 2+ hours, through a rain shower and all. The performance was wonderful, the actors excellent. This is not a cheesy money-making scheme, this is a great way to fully appreciate Shakespeare's work.
Afterwards we walked across the Millenium Bridge--the one destroyed in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Princ--to St. Paul's Cathedral.
There was a service in progress, so we couldn't do the full tour, but it was beautiful to be in there with the music echoing in the nave. After a quick look inside, we hopped a bus to Fortnum & Mason, where we got rid of a few pounds on luxury foods. Mustards, chocolate, wild strawberry jams....and we haven't had a chance yet to taste any of it!
|One of the window displays...it's like the Sak's of food!|
Look kids, Big Ben...
...and a panaroma of the Thames with the London Eye.
There. Now, I have to get ready to go; we've got an appointment at the Eiffel Tower this morning. Ta-ta for now!
