Whoa, I think I spoke too soon about jet lag. However, instead of zonking us out at 3 in the afternoon, it woke us up, wide awake, at 3am. Good thing we had a little whisky in our room.
This day started my master class at Shakespeare’s Globe. I’ll do a more involved post regarding the brilliant things I learned there as I’m still processing, but I’ll give a nice overview. We popped across the street for some breakfast at Costa Coffee.
Then we strolled over to the Globe to check in. On the way we stopped at a juice place for a little fortification. I had a greens drink that was truly delish! Turns out I didn’t need to do anything before the scheduled arrival time of 1:00pm, so we stopped in the shop for a minute to drool…oh and to buy my hubby a hat. Did I mention the heat wave? Came with gorgeous sunny days and I didn’t want him to get sunburned.
To kill a couple of hours, we went down the south bank of the Themes to the Tate Modern. Did you know museums are free in London? The best. I feel it’s important to visit all the museums I can, but I will admit this is my least favorite. I guess I’m not a contemporary art kinda girl. We saw some very cool stuff and some stuff that really made us scratch our heads…but I really appreciate the work the artists put into their work and that they get to share that.
I had to go, but Steve stayed, went up to the observation deck to see the view, and hung out for a few more hours.
The first day of the master class ended with a workshop by my favorite woman at the Globe, Margo Gunn! So good to see her before she took off for a Shakespeare gig in Hong Kong. Steve was invited to the reception where he got to meet my classmates, see our old friend Patrick Spottiswoode, and have some snacks. It was a good day and this time, I think we really had kicked the jet lag!
