Imperial War Museum and the Globe Theatre

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 20 June 2007 | Views [374]

This day has been jam-packed. We started the day off on a light note by touring the Imperial War Museum. Our teacher talked to us about different tanks and missiles and about the use of gas in WWI. We were then free to roam about the museum on our own. There were exhibits for WWI & WWII, the Holocaust, D-day, the Faulkland Islands war, as well as others. We spent the remainder of our time in the Holocaust portion. It was really informative, huge and really depressing.

After grabbing some lunch, I got ready for my interview. I made it there early and I really, really like my boss. He is the CEO of the company and is only 32. I think the job will be a blast and Ill learn a lot and he is giving me some money thatll make grocery shopping easier. :o)

We then headed to a pub called Founders Arms for a pint before The Merchant of Venice at the Globe. I was one of the lucky ones that had a standing ticket. Yeah, that's right, I was suppose to stand for three hours in a theatre that has no roof. Then it started to rain. I wasn't wearing a rainproof coat and the rain was not letting up, so the girls in our group made room on the bench where their sitting tickets were. We were able to sit for the remainder of the show. At intermission we got some chocolate covered raisins and they were super tasty. The play was really good, but I wasn't aloud to take any pictures. :o/

Now, It's bed time!
