Just keep walking...

Yes, all of my English teachers would be very proud, today I saw Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. In case you were wondering, it uses no microphones, no sound system, and no stage lights. All of the building materials and methods used in the renovation of the theatre date back to Tudor times.
Along the Thames we ran into this really unique wall filled with graffiti. It's a huge wall and there were 'artists' working on parts of it.


Here is a glimpse of the London Eye, and in the background is Big Ben himself. The sun came out for a little bit today, and everything looked so beautiful!
Sarajane, Me, and Amanda crossing the bridge to get to Big Ben. A little Big Ben history: Constructed in 1859, technically, the term "Big Ben" applies only to the bell on top of the tower, not to the tower itself-so technically one does not see Big Ben without going inside the tower.

I WAS wondering about the technical aspects of the Globe! And sadly, I guess I cannot claim to have seen Big Ben. However, you look SO CUTE in those pictures!

You should wear a pedometer one of these days...
