my sunday in london : markets, shops, a lovely museum, yummy dinner, and a wonderful play


my day in london was a blast. thank you for all the wise suggestions!
we started in covent garden, browsing through the covered market,
and then we made our way to the seven dials area where i fell
victim to two pairs of new shoes...they just lept into my hands!

we spent some time in the tate modern. so so so wonderful.
and we ended up eating dinner at a turkish restaurant
just across the street from the globe.

alls well that ends well was fantastic.
it was certainly more upbeat than the other shakespeare
plays we've been seeing. they've all been wonderful,
but i was definitely happy for something lighter.

i'm off to tintagel and st. ives for the weekend...
should be lovely!

I recognized Covent Garden right away. I loved it as a teenager, but I'm sure I would absorb and love it so much more now.

Safe travels.

I'm sooo jealous! (Glad to see you're savouring every second!) Question - the stamps? Where was this?
Also what are you studying at Oxford?

Glad you enjoyed your time in London, and went home with some souvenirs! St Ives has another Tate! Also make sure you eat a pasty, they are So good.

Did you sit or stand at the Globe? We chose the hard benches on the main floor.

Tintagel is the most beautiful place I visited in Britain. I couldn't believe how magical. Just right for the birthplace of a legend. Have a marvelous time!

Brown Paper Packages,

The stamps were at a flea market in Covent Gardens...they were fantastic! I bought a ship and a tree :)

I'm working on a graduate degree in English Literature here.
