P.S. Today we showered....it was cold but the first.....AMAZING!!!!!
So today we took the bus to Stratford-upon-Avon....YEAH!!!! Shakespeare's place!!!! The first thing we did was go see the grave stone in the Holly Trinity Church. The church had the most beautiful stain glass and statues/ carvings of William Shakespeare. It was unreal really to be standing there looking at where this man that we have studied so much is barried. We then walked along the Avon Canal, saw the Swan Theatre and checked out where William Shakespeare was born. Really it's just a house but whatever got the picture and moved on. To end our day we got to go on a free tour of the Courtyard theatre. It was awesome! Checked out backstage, the show that was going on, learned the history of the theatre and about the RSC which is the Royal Shakepeare Company that puts on all the play in Avon. Then to end our day we took a bus to our hostel which was in a forrest with several kids running randomly around and well it made us feel like we just entered Lord of the Flies. Amazing ending to a great day.
