Day 4: St. Paul's Cathedral and the Globe Theatre

sunny 28 °C

Day 4 of my journey in Europe, and its still exceptionally hot! it was 28 today and not a hint of the rain that was supposed to hit today! We had a brilliant day, St Paul's Cathedral this morning was absolutely amazing! I'm not really much of a church fan, but the cathedral was so gigantic and so beautiful i couldn't help but spend a couple of hours exploring the galleries, the crypt and climbing all the way to the top to see a spectacular view of London city! The climb to the top is a bit of an effort, and at points hard for claustrophobic people, but well worth the effort.

After the Cathedral, we got walked across the Millenium Footbridge to see a performance a the Globe Theatre. Having not read 'Taming of the Shrew' i feel i followed it well, unlike a large number that weren't laughing at the jokes, for a lack of understanding. the performance was smashing, and the theatre itself was spectacular! We stood in the yard watching it like they did in the times of Shakespeare, made me a bit sore standing there for three hours, but was certainly worth it. We've just gotten back and had dinner at Lynn's and are preparing for a night out at a bar called the Peacock, as we both go to a pub in Northcote with the same name! Having a fantastic time!

Seems like the weather has been the opposite of melbourne. Melbourne has been pretty miserable. Have fun at the bar!
