London…H. Potter Premier, British Museum, Big Ben, and sneaking into Hamlet

Ok I want to start out with something that I’ve been thinking about. I realize on my blog posts I’m not the best writer. This saddens me because I do have the capacity to be a pretty delightful, intriguing, witty, and even inspired writer. That, unfortunately for me, takes a considerable amount of time. And if I spent the time to make my writing great, the reality is that I wouldn’t have anything to write about. So…you must put up with my bad grammar, wrong spelling, rambling thoughts, and unparalleled structure.

Now…onto yesterday. Yesterday was one of the best days we’ve had in London thus far. It started off with a tremendous downpour of rain which put me in a retched mood but that was just for a hot second. We went to the British Museum, raj across the world premier of Harry Potter and were THIS CLOSE to the cast, came home for a nap, saw Big Ben, went to check out Shakespear’s Globe Theatre and weren’t expecting to see Hamlet because tickets have been sold out for 2 months but when we arrived it was on intermission and we decided to try to sneak on with the crowd when they went back in. It worked! We got to see the second half of Hamlet for free! It was glorious! I think I liked the sneaking in part just as much as the Hamlet part. Then we walked back home on happened upon St. peter’s Cathedral, and Fleet Street! It was a great great day.

    Wow! Can’t believe all you fit into one day! Thanks again for taking the time to post pictures (love them!) and thoughts. And no worries about unpolished writing. The best travelogs are rough, written in the moment.
